The Southwestern United States has a large source of different types of turquoise; Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. Deposits of New Mexico and California were primarily mined by Columbian Native Americans using archaic tools. Cerrillos, New Mexico is known to be one of the oldest mines; prior to the 1920s, the state was the country's largest producer. Today Arizona and Nevada are more popular because most in New Mexico and California their turquoise stock has been depleted.
