About Us

In 1962, the first hammer struck Ithica Peak and cracked a piece of Chuck Colbaugh’s first rock of turquoise.  Chuck Colbaugh was an inventor and miner of some of the most well known mines of his era.  Generations later his son Marty and grandson Josh have since learned the craft and are passing the torch to a new generation of miner.

Turquoise was the first stone in the recorded history of man to be used as a gem according to the Library of Congress.  The vein of this precious stone runs through the Southwest and as it burrows through Arizona, the color transforms into a majestic blue green color very unique to this area.

 

It has a magic to it. Every culture in the world holds turquoise in a very high regard. Turquoise, the first gemstone every used by man.  -Marty Colbaugh
