Startling Stone Found at the Queen of the Copper Camps
Meet the remarkable stone of the mining boom
From boomtown to bust, the mining mecca of Bisbee, Arizona, has quite a story to tell. Founded in 1880 as a copper, gold and silver mining town, Bisbee saw its population soar in the early 20th century because of the mining boom, becoming the largest American city between St. Louis and San Francisco. This incredible tale inspired us to create our Boomtown Azurite Ring.
Bisbee proved to be one of the richest mining sites in the world, producing more than 8 billion pounds of copper and earning it the nickname “Queen of the Copper Camps.” These days, Bisbee is more of a tourist destination than a mining site, but azurite mined there remains some of the most sought-after on the planet.
“No other mineral is more closely associated with the mines in Bisbee than azurite,” writes the Mineralogical Record. “The array of forms, range of hues and the wide variety of associations, combine to produce Bisbee’s most breathtaking masterpieces.”
With this ring you’ll find more than 12 total carats of startlingly blue and green azurite cabochons and sparkling white stones placed in yellow gold-finished .925 sterling silver. Everything about this jewelry is built to make azurite’s astounding color pop when worn.
Azurite’s story in America dates back to the boom and bust of the Wild West. Embrace this unique history with the Boomtown Azurite Ring and you’ll always have a tale to tell.
