Greetings from Alberta

Thank you for allowing me to join this group.
I am a retired mixed media artist which includes doing Lapidary for a few years. I love Turquoise and Chrysocolla, my favourite colors. I look forward to learning more about the different Turquoise and meeting new people.


There are many knowledgeable people here.
Spend some time looking through the topics that interest you.


Welcome!! I agree with @fernwood, you can learn a lot here, and have some fun!

I love Alberta, and Canada! Whereabouts in Alberta? My husband and I spent about a week in the Banff/Jasper area, and years later part of a day in Waterton (such beautiful places), and I’ve spent a LOT of time throughout my life in Canada in general. We have another Canadian member, also; from BC I believe.


Hello, @owllady! You are most welcome!

This is a wonderful place to learn about turquoise and Native American jewellery. I’m fairly new myself – I’m from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. I’m sure you’ll have a great time here! waves from the other side of the Rockies


Hi there, nice to meet you.
I moved here from Victoria BC 2 yrs. ago. The cost of living is better here especially for seniors. The house we bought here would of been 1 million more in Victoria.


Hi there, nice to meet you.
Medicine Hat - the sunniest place in Canada. It also has many greenhouses that sell to the public at great prices.
For me, being a 40 yr. vegitarian, it is paradise. Banff is beautiful. Glad you enjoyed your time in Canada.


Greetings owl! Welcome. I was just in Quetico, canoeing and fishing with the hubby. So beautiful. I was wondering about your picture of the turquoise cuff. Is that yours? If so, can you post a bigger picture? What kind of turquoise is it…such a deep blue.

Hi there,
The main stone is an aprox. 70ct Chrysocolla I cut and polished myself
years ago. I intended to put up the photos to see what the Turquoise is in the side stones. I will do that later.
