Pixie Turquoise

Pixie is not a famous turquoise mine. It is not even a not so famous mine but it has a great story. Is it turquoise, or variscite, or faustite? In this video Mike discuses the Pixie story and we see some beautiful turquoise. Or is it?

Great sleuthing Mike! It makes sense, and those of us who do turquoise research often have to put disjointed info together as you have done. I hadn't heard of Bozo Quinn before, but I had several bits of data that told me Pixie was a leased claim that was stepped on by Cortez. I know of a couple of others that claimed to have had a lease there one summer in the early 70s. Pixie, Carico and Orvil Jack are the best green "turquoise" (faustite) IMHO.

Thanks. You know more about the small claims than anyone. I agree with your best of the green and would add Northern Lights.
