No turquoise stone left unturned
Over four total carats of the diamond of the desert — Arizona turquoise
DATELINE: Sedona — Surrounded by the splendor of one of America's most striking places, I found one of my greatest deals to date. Most people head to the Arizonan town of Sedona to take in the cinematic red rocks and inviting hiking trails, but I was there on a mission: To crash the secretive underworld of the turquoise trade.
Unfortunately, I'd *ahem* left my invitation to the big get-together in a different pair of pants. Lucky for me, my old Hopi friend Tommy was able grease the skids, and before I knew it, we were in a non-descript warehouse on the outskirts of town.
Inside that rusty old shed was more turquoise than Carter has pills. I couldn't swing a cat -- not that I wanted to -- without hitting hundreds of turquoise pieces in every shape and hue. After some dramatic negotiations that involved me throwing in my recently purchased 10-gallon cowboy hat, I made a deal, and came home with a boatload of turquoise. Now, my bounty can be yours as well.
