Nestled in the rolling Cerrillos Hills just south of Santa Fe NM, The Cerrillos Turquoise Mines are the oldest and most prolific prehistoric mines in North America. Revered for centuries, Cerrillos Turquoise was carried great distances from the Turquoise Trail along ancient trade routes. Sacred Aztec and Mayan ceremonial pieces are adorned with this precious stone, as are Spain's crown jewels.
Around the turn of the 20th century, Tiffany & Co. recognized this prized natural gem's beauty and value. Cerrillos Turquoise was featured in their jewelry collections, and it is what inspired the classic "blue box" color that is synonymous with Tiffany & Co. to this day.
