The Morenci turquoise mine produced a turquoise that is light to dark bright blue in hue. This stone has an unusual reddish brown matrix of irregular quartz and pyrite that, when polished, often resembles silver. Also, a small amount of Morenci turquoise had some brownish matrix called “Morenci red matrix” such as in this piece. One of the first American turquoises to come to the market was Morenci Turquoise. Morenci is highly valued and difficult to obtain because the Morenci mine in Southeast AZ is buried under tons of rock (permanently closed). This mine will never open again because the mine was leeched with chemicals that would have destroyed any remaining turquoise. This is one of the nicest Morenci Pieces I have ever owned. The stones are HUGE NATURAL SLAB CABOCHONS firmly set in strong heavy gauge straight edge sterling silver bezels; and so as not to take away from the stones, the artist showcased them by utilizing a simple twisted rope around each stone; and then flanked the sides with a thick link chain design and two incised leafs. Heavy Gauge Tri-Terminals were made to make this cuff virtually indestructible. Signed “Kee” on the Back. This fabulous cuff weighs a whopping 148.1grtw about 5.22oz. The piece is signed and one of a kind for your wearing pleasure. These are three hard glossy “gemstones”; taking eons to form just under the right conditions. SO GRAND IN PERSON. HARD TO CAPTURE THE TRUE BEAUTY AND CHARACTER OF THIS BRACELET WITH A CAMERA. Over the years I have only collected Native American Jewelry based on the value, grade, and rarity of the piece, preferring jewelry with unique character, along with great craftsmanship. In other words, jewelry that is not only beautiful, but a great investment, and of historical value. Pristine Condition to Silver and Stone. As collectors of old pawn natural turquoise jewelry are discovering, it is becoming more difficult to acquire jewelry of this size and workmanship. Most of the turquoise mines are now depleted and closed and less and less fine quality old pawn turquoise jewelry is coming to the open market; except through old stock and personal collections.

OBITUARIES GIVING SOME HISTORY WITH REGARD TO NAVAJO LEROY DAYEA’S ADOPTIVE PARENTS, “ATKINSON TRADING” PIONEERS— WILMERINE AND LEROY ATKINSON ATKINSON, Wilmerine, 79, b. 1997; 79yrs old, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, died Wednesday, February 5, 1997 in Albuquerque. She was preceded in death by her husband, Leroy. She is survived by her children, Tyler Nancy Atkinson, Joe Atkinson, Lynn Atkinson, Leroy Dayea; eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Wilmerine and Leroy knew they had found the love of their life when they were just kids during the Depression in Alvarado and Grandview, Texas. They married at 17 and 19 and moved with her family to New Mexico. Together they learned the trading post business and Indian Arts and culture. Leroy spoke fluent Navajo. Wilmerine worked by his side, bore four children and adopted Leroy Dayea, a Navajo child. They moved to Tucson in the 50’s and ran Indian art stores. They are together again. Funeral Services will be held at 1:00 p. On Monday, February 10, 1997 at EAST LAWN PALMS MORTUARY CHAPEL, 5801 E. Interment will follow at East Lawn Palms Cemetery. Memorial donations, in lieu of flowers, may be made to a charity of choice. ATKINSON, Leroy Bozo’, 78, b. 1915-d 1994; a resident of Albuquerque, NM, died Saturday, September 24, 1994. He was born November 15, 1915 on his father’s farm near Grandview, Texas. Leroy was a high school football star when he met Wilmerine Bollin. They were married in 1935. Leroy and Wilmerine started out in Gallup, NM where he began to learn the business of trading with the Navajo Indians. After working for other Indian traders he determined it was time to go into business for himself. Box Canyon Trading Post was the beginning of a career that lasted 47 years. An interview and photo was placed in the Route 66 Book noting Leroy for the quality and finish of the Navajo jewelry he had produced. He was interviewed in Life Magazine and the New Mexico Magazine. Leroy was a member of the AIAA Elks. He was highly respected for his abilities, integrity and his willingness to always help others. Leroy loved to chew on large cigars, but to his friends amazement the cigar was never lit. His counsel, love, caring and generosity will always be remembered by those fortunate enough to have known him. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Wilmerine Atkinson of Albuquerque; daughter, Tyler Atkinson of Santa Fe; sons, Joe (Jeanelle) Atkinson of Durango, CO and Lynn (Donna) Atkinson of Tucson; adopted son, Leroy Dayea b. Dayea, Spouse of Gallup, NM; grandchildren, Suzanna Bennett Dayea, Eric and Jona Bonecutter, Josh, Shauna, Tracey, Erin, Katie and Kerri Atkinson; one great-grandchild; brother, Herman Atkinson of Scottsdale, AZ; sister, Anna Mae Panos of Tucson. Funeral Service 2:00 p. Thursday, September 29 at BRING’S BROADWAY CHAPEL, 6910 E. Jon Lerley officiating, with interment to follow at TMP, East Lawn. Memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer’s Assoc. Box 13423, Tucson, AZ 85705 The Box Canyon Trading Post was one mile east of the state line in New Mexico. It was built by Leroy Atkinson in 1943 and he ran it for a decade until US Highway 66 was widened, which impacted the commercial viability of the property. The building itself seems fairly modern with big plate glass windows along the front, the requisite Indian drawings, and even the gas pumps seem fairly modern too. But the maroon Chevron gasoline style sign and the streamlined automobile seem to indicate the decade of the 1950s. (Petley 6961) ATKINSON, Leroy Bozo’, 78, a resident of Albuquerque, NM, died Saturday, September 24, 1994. He was born November 15, 1915 on his fathers farm near Grandview, Texas.

Limited Amount of truly natural stones available in the Open Market; As collectors of old pawn natural EXTINCT BISBEE turquoise jewelry are discovering, it is becoming more difficult to acquire jewelry of this natural caliber since most of the turquoise mines are now depleted and closed and less and less fine quality old pawn turquoise jewelry is coming to the open market. Ring Size: 10.75. Sterling Setting: 1 1/8″H x 1 1/8″W. Mine: Bisbee, AZ. Navajo Artist Name: Unsigned Old Pawn. Medium: Sterling Silver Turquoise. High Domed Stone size: c. 25Deep. Gemstone: NATURAL SPIDERWEB BLUE BISBEE TURQUOISE STONE. Condition: This piece is in mint condition with little or no signs of wear. Please see photos for details Heirloomhunter101 is introducing for your consideration this incredibly ELEGANT Navajo Old pawn High Grade Blue Bisbee Spiderweb Turquoise Lady’s or Man’s Ring from my personal collection. Sterling Silver Band can be resized by jeweler. Natural HIGH GRADE turquoise stones are becoming more difficult to find; many fine stones are in private collections like mine. The turquoise is deep blue in color with an earthy chocolate lavender matrix. The artisan was obviously very inspired by the stone to create such a nice setting to showcase the gorgeous untreated turquoise cabochon. A true collaboration between Man and Nature. Not only is the stone luscious; the master traditional silversmithing by the Native American artisan who created this piece brings it home. The focal stone has a complex earthy spiderweb matrix which sets off the beautiful deep blue natural turquoise stone. Turquoise gets its various colors from heavy metals found in the ground where it forms over millennia. The gorgeous color consistency makes this stone very distinctive and unique. It took the earth “millions of years” to create these beautiful stones and it took men a very short time to deplete the mines. Every piece of turquoise we remove from the earth is going to take millions of years to re-form just under the right conditions…. All in all this will make a beautiful edition to your RARE native American jewelry collection. Everything is in pristine vintage condition with no damage to the stone or the sterling.
