Turquoise was mined by the Aztecs in an area now known as New Mexico, and a significant amount of turquoise comes from Arizona and Nevada. Most is located near copper deposits in desert regions of the world. Turquoise forms when water percolates through rocks that contain copper and aluminum. A chemical reaction takes place that results in deposits of what we know as turquoise. The blue in turquoise comes out when copper is present, but if the site contains more aluminum, the turquoise will shade to green.
