Turquoise Earrings 2
These are two beautiful pieces of turquoise that come from the Royston Turquoise mine in Nevada. The Royston mine used to allow the public to dig through the tailings and Jake was lucky enough to get there a couple of times before the mine owners decided to discontinue the public access. The Royston mine is famous for the high quality of the turquoise it produces, both for the varied colors and the hardness of the stone which allows it to take a great polish without any chemical treatment of the stone. These stones are a deep green in color with a touch of blue and mixed with the dark matrix rock for a stunning appearance. The settings are sterling silver with a fancy bezel surrounded by a twisted square copper wire as an accent, and the hoops are sterling with a flattened wire and a black onyx bead.
