''The elf-queene, with hir joly compaignie, Daunced ful ofte in many a grene mede.” Geoffrey Chaucer "The Wife of Bath’s Tale"


Longtime readers know I love Arkansas crystals!  Years ago I was privileged to live in the *Hot Springs crystal vortex area, fulfilling a lifetime goal (I was moved on but went back for a definitive life experience later).  As a child I sensed the energy and although didn't know anything about crystals, ley lines, earth chakras etc, I never forgot it.  Of course, diamonds are a girls best friend, and Arkansas is only place in the United States that has them, but  Bisbee, Arizona turquoise a la Edgar Cayce is my favorite and what I wear.    Imagine my surprise a few years ago to discover that there was also Arkansas turquoise, the Mona Lisa mine right there! It was serendipity, because I found one of the last pieces around to complete the  Bisbee turquoise energy frequency circuit on my altar.

Turquoise is a copper/aluminum phosphate. Turquoise or related minerals are reported in minor quantities at several sites in the Ouachita Mountains. However, a small turquoise deposit in T4S R30W Secs.23&24 on Porter Mountain (old McBride mine) of the Mena Ranger District is located in the Arkansas Novaculite Formation. Turquoise, a copper/aluminum phosphate mineral, is used primarily for jewelry purposes. This deposit has been intermittently mined and sold under the trade name of "Mona Lisa" turquoise since 1958.
