Royston rough (circa 1975)
Royston is a mining district in Nevada with of a number of turquoise mines and is the largest producer of turquoise in Nevada, turquoise was mined here by the Native Americans, but the first discoveries by local prospectors were made around 1903. The turquoise occurs in cracks and crevices in an altered volcanic rock along certain fault zones. Royston turquoise is known for its range beautiful colors from deep green to rich, light blues set off by a heavy brown matrix. Much of the material is hard and takes a fine polish. Royston is also famous for stones which combine both blue and green in the same piece, with one color fading into the other. Aqua blue material with a slight green cast is also quite common. Several of the Royston mines are currently in production but the work is now done on an sporadic and small scale basis. All of the Royston turquoise we have was acquired in the 1970's and many of the cabs are "Mine Cut" and may have minor imperfections and are priced accordingly.
