Morenci Turquoise has an interesting history. It comes from an old copper mine in southeastern Arizona that dates back to 1864. This stone was a by-product of the mine, but I think it's the shining star. This turquoise is no longer mined, but every once in a while it shows up on the market. Lucky for us we can still enjoy its beauty!
Silver will naturally oxidize over time. I provide wipes that you can use on any jewelry I make. Commercial dips can be very harsh on surface treatments and porous stones. Try to avoid dipping any porous stones in the solution such as pearls, turquoise, variscites, opals, and jaspers. Q tips are great to get around the stones. If your piece has keum boo on it do not soak your piece in any jewelry dips. Usually a quick dip and immediate rinse in water with soap will clean your piece. Gold pieces can be shined and cleaned with my polishing wipes I provide and if you need to get behind a stone use hot soapy water and a soft toothbrush. If the piece is already oxidized and needs to be cleaned, hot soapy water or a soft cloth work well.
