This mesquite coffee table with turquoise inlay was designed using two sequential slabs from a rare, wide mesquite log from the Texas Hill Country. Its authentic turquoise was mined from the copper-rich soils of the last operational turquoise mine on the Cerillos Turquoise Trail near Santa Fe, New Mexico. The copper content of the soil there gives Cerillos Turquoise its distinctive green hue as compared to most commercially available genuine turquoise that trends more towards blue. The black walnut pedestal that employs merging angles and arcs was inspired by the late George Nakashima.
