About the origin of the name squash blossom. Some say that the Navajo created the squash blossom after seeing the pomegranate design frequently used as decoration by the Spanish people, including on the buttons of the soldiers uniforms.
In parts of Spain, the pomegranate is a revered fruit; in particular, it is the heraldic symbol of the city of Granada, which is also the Spanish word for the fruit known in English as pomegranate. Others, meanwhile, believe that the squash blossom is exactly as advertiseda design taken from the flowery part of the squash plant, which, along with corn and beans, are the crops that Native Americans relied on in the Southwest.
The regulations also required the trader to tell the owner when the year was coming due, and, if the item was not reclaimed, the item went to dead pawn status, after which the trader than could sell the item to anyone. Nonetheless, it was usually in the trader's best interest not to sell items that went into dead pawn as to not offend the owner - as this would then hurt the trader's reputation in the community. 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. The Kingman Turquoise mine also produces green Turquoise from the Turquoise Mountain side of the mine. Kingman Turquoise has been the biggest supplier of Turquoise to the Southwestern Turquoise Jewelry industry for nearly as long as the American Turquoise Jewelry industry has existed. In fact, the Kingman Turquoise mine was once part of a Turquoise boom around 1000 AD when the Mayan culture was using a lot of Turquoise for self adornments and ceremonial items.
Today, as in the old times, blue Turquoise from Kingman, Arizona is king, even though the mine produces all colors of Turquoise and green Turquoise is almost becoming blue Turquoise's equal in popularity these days.
