    For the first time, discover the adventure in the search for turquoise outside of Cerrillos on the Turquoise Hill.

And the backers of the American Turquoise Co. were titans: Charles Lewis Tiffany, the New York jeweler, James Stillman, president of First National City Bank of New York and one of America’s richest men and Allan Pinkerton of the detective agency.
