Ithaca Peak Turquoise Mine
|<< Back to: List of Turquoise Mines||Next: King's Manassa Turquoise >>|
Ithaca Peak turquoise comes from the Cerbat Mountains in Mohave County. It is part of the Kingman mining operations and one of the two main turquoise deposits along with Turquoise Mountain.
Ithaca peak turquoise, like Kingman, is typically a beautiful sky blue color but is specifically known for heavier pyrite inclusions. While pyrite is also found in other types of turquoise, it will usually be more of a brassy color in the Ithaca Peak material, which can be helpful in differentiating it from similar stones like Morenci turquoise.
