If what you want is reconstituted turquoise, check out the major
knifemaking supply houses. (Try Texas Knifemaker Supply and Jantz
Supply to start with.)

I wouldn’t know where to get rough turquoise, but most of the stuff
these days is being stabilized at the mine. Try lapidary supply
places?

A few possibilities are New Era Gems, Thunderbird Supply and
Colbaugh Processing. By the way does anyone know of a source to have
a small amount of turquoise stabilized?

You might try calling the Sleeping Beauty Mine store in Globe, AZ.
Their number is 888-425-7698. http://www.sbturquoise.com

They brag about their product being “natural”, but I suspect they
sell a lot to companies which stabilize it, even if they don’t do it
themselves.
