You simply cannot ignore turquoise. It's magical, healing, and full of energy. Once you see it, you get drawn by its beauty and its positivity - the pop of color that makes you feel calm, relaxed, and at the same time happy. That is exactly how we feel at Turquoise Moose. 

Turquoise Moose: A journey to a 10-year collecting experience

Team Moose was the first one in the industry to perfect natural turquoise in faceted bars - and the rest was history. Since then, we have been working hard and having fun in creating various unique shapes made from 100% genuine materials.

In 2017, lifelong turquoise hobbyists turned into lapidarist Li and Erika started Turquoise Moose as an avenue to make genuine cabochons available online.We knew how frustratingly hard it is to acquire genuine and unprocessed turquoise. At that time, people went to trade shows which were costly to travel to, with only a small shopping window for creators.

It got excruciatingly difficult to look for pieces that are at par with our standards, so we decided to take it upon ourselves to bring the materials to us and help our fellow turquoise enthusiasts in getting the best kind of materials for their jewelry-making. We wanted to avoid the horror of poor-quality purchases and eventually found reputable mine owners across the globe to work with, which then gave birth to Turquoise Moose.
