Antique Native American jewelry is very rare to find. This is due to these pieces being made for reservation and personal use before the tourist trade became popular. Very few pieces were made and even less survived to today. Kingman Turquoise is a beautiful type of turquoise that comes out of Kingman, Arizona. It is highly prized for its rich blue hues mixed with black iron pyrite matrix.
