Hannah Blount Jewelry's beloved Kingman turquoise comes from none other then Colbaugh Processing's mine in Arizona. The city of this historic, natural wonder actually predates the statehood of AZ, and was originally mined by the Native Americans.

Commercial mining of the Mineral Park Mine began in the 1880s; the Colbaugh family has owned and operated Kingman facilities since the start of Arizona's turquoise mining boom.

HBJ loves Kingman turquoise for not only it's incredible vibrancy and variation, but for it's distinctive veins and inclusions within each gemstone.
