The term Rosarita comes from the red slag glass that was created in early Alaskan gold refining processes, which used beach sand and flux to bring the impurities (gold), to the surface. While the term Rosarita is loosely used in the lapidary industry, most modern versions do not come from the original gold refining process that originally created the material, hence, does not contain gold or any traces of it. Today, many cabochon cutters use the term as a title for most slag glass created in different refining processes. Slag glass comes in just about every color. The most valuable and most used is red without any variations in color.
The Kingman Turquoise Mine is one of the oldest and highest producing Turquoise Mines in America. It was originally discovered by prehistoric Indians well over 1000 years ago. Kingman Turquoise is known for its beautiful sky blue color and produces many variations of blue Turquoise.
