Turquoise Bolo Ties
Authentic Native American Indian Bolo Ties featuring stones and inlay pieces of Turquoise mixed with complimentary stones such as Coral, Jet and Mother of Pearl. Turquoise likes to be close to the surface of the earth and deposits are often visible on the ground. Native Americans probably became acquainted with it in that way and then began to dig for it. There are ancient mines here in North America. One of the oldest – the Cerrillos mine near Santa Fe in New Mexico – has been mined by Native Americans for almost 2000 years. Turquoise from this mine has been found 1400 miles south in Tenochtitlan, the “Rome” of the Aztecs over the ruins of which Mexico City stands today.
