There’s A Castle In New Mexico That’s Also A Turquoise Museum And It’s A Gem-Lovers Happy Place
If there’s any gemstone undoubtedly associated with the Southwest, it’s turquoise. Sturdy, earthy, and available in a wide array of colors that remind you of the sky and water, turquoise is an alluring stone that characterizes life in this region.
