This map is important in
today's turquoise industry. There is a great deal of misinformation about what it domestic (USA) turquoise and foreign turquoise. There is mass amount of foreign turquoise being represented and sold as domestic turquoise, with much of this material being treated and highly stabilized. It has always been frowned upon by those that felt it was important to represent turquoise honestly for where it is from, if it is treated and that it is priced accordingly. All material has a place in the market, but it should be represented for what it is and where it is from! The cost into mining domestic turquoise is huge and that alone should be respected. It hurts all involved including the artists that purchase and present turquoise in their pieces of jewelry. Trust is what has built this cottage industry and it is important for the consumer to be able trust what they are purchasing.
