The Turquoise Museum Moves to a New Home


On Aug. 10, 2018, the Turquoise Museum, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, will reopen in its new home, the Gertrude Zachary castle in downtown Albuquerque, in which the museum will occupy over 8,000 square feet of space.

Guided tours of the museum present information about the mining, science and grading of turquoise, lapidary techniques, world histories, American histories, turquoise imitations, and the mystical qualities of the stone. The tour is supplemented by many hands-on activities.

The J.C. “Zack” Zachary Turquoise Collection Room displays turquoise from more than 80 mines from around the world. Turquoise specimens, jewelry and art from the continents of North America, South America, Asia, Europe, Africa and Australia are exhibited.

  1. Hi,
    I messaged you the other day on another matter, but going through my database I also see your website is not SSL secure.
    Google is going after non SSL secure sites in a big way (even going as far as deindexing sites on mobile next year), just some of the benefits of being SSL secure include better google rankings, faster load times and TRUST from your users (no one likes seeing “website is not secure” plastered on a website)
    Let me give you the rundown of all the benefits and how I can get you SSL
