There has been no Villa Grove Turquoise on the market for over 25 years.The Villa Grove Turquoise Mine that Randy acquires most of his turquoise from is located in the North end of the San Luis Valley. The past two summers Randy has begun mining the turquoise for his jewelry, and will be venturing to the mine with the necessary equipment to mine the high – grade vein. Since retiring , he has returned to his passion which is jewelry, and silversmithing. His pieces are striking and unique and the Villa Grove Turquoise has a deep rich blue.
