Morenci turquoise is another American classic, highly regarded and sought after by collectors. Though the Morenci turquoise mine produces a wide range of colors from blue to green, the most desirable is a deep blue color with a heavy iron pyrite matrix and occasionally some spider-webbing.

The mine is located in Southeastern Arizona. It is the by-product of a large open-pit copper mining operation and dates back to 1864. William "Lucky" Brown was offered the mining rights in the 1950s and the Brown family has worked the mine since.
