Turquoise, Water, Sky

The Museum of Indian Arts & Culture in Santa Fe has opened a new long-term exhibition that draws on its collection of turquoise jewelry and related artifacts. Titled Turquoise, Water, Sky: The Stone and Its Meaning, it explores the importance of this delicately colored stone to the peoples of the American Southwest. While we generally associate it with jewelry, turquoise also has long had ritual importance and significant trade implications. Even its geology is addressed in this comprehensive survey.
