Texas Turquoise

We met a cute old guy who helped set up the mining exhibition at the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center. He showed us around and told us about some of the specimens, and when I expressed interest in the "Texas turquoise" on display, he bragged that his wife had the only necklace made of Texas turquoise, from a piece he collected, and he ran to fetch it. It was beautiful!
