    Hey there, great video! I am the owner of a turquoise mine here in new mexico and am glad to see other people taking interest in our states amazing turquoise! the mine that i own is here in lincoln county and is called New Enchantment, i picked up the claim about 3 years ago, it was abandoned by joe dan lowry so i filed with the blm and that was that, most of the turquoise i get up there is pine to emerald to army green and has a rhyolite, to caolonite matrix it’s some gorgeous stuff, if your ever curious about it checkout montes minerals on facebook, i post pictures of all the cabochons, rough stone, and jewelry i make

    Thank you for your education! Are you able to identify turquoise from a picture? I was hoping to find an expert opinion on a piece of my own. I’m not looking for an appraisal, just help identifying. I have watched all your videos and I am still scratching my head 😂 Thank you!
