Which one?
Here are a couple:

East of El Rosario near El Aguajito:
Contact Ed Lusk the owner of Baja's Best Bed & Breakfast, east end of El Rosario. Ed has turquoise pieces for sale and takes guests to the mine to prospect for pieces.

The other popular turquoise mine in discussion here is only worked periodically... located south of Gonzaga Bay and north of Coco's Corner, about 4 miles west of Hwy. 5 route.

My web page on that one: http://vivabaja.com/wayno/page2.html

This 1970 map showed many of us where to find it:

Since that info was provided, one more rock based question;
I really got a thing for Geodes, know of any spots to find them in Baja?

Biggest I've found in AZ is about the size of my brain (God sure works in strange ways):P, wife says composition is similar too
