Las Cruces Real Estate | Throwback Thursday - State Gem

If you have been in New Mexico for a while, you have likely seen the women of this state walking around with beautiful silver and turquoise jewelry. The southwestern style of jewelry often incorporates the mineral turquoise, but did you know that this vibrant colored stone is actually the state gem. This gem has been mined here in the state since before the Spanish settlers arrived to this area and was officially made the state gem in 1967.
