Turquoise Pendant 39


Royston Turquoise Beauty!



Royston turquoise is one of Jake’s favorite gemstones, and this piece has a very unusual look.  The Royston mine is in Nevada, and is one of only a handful of American mines that still produce turquoise.  The rarity of turquoise has driven up the price quite a bit.  The Royston mine owners used to allow the public to dig through the tailings at the mine but have decided to discontinue access to the public.  are was lucky enough to visit this mine on two occasions before it was closed to the public, and he still has some beautiful raw turquoise from those visits to work with.  This piece has robin’s egg blue mixed in with the brown matrix stone and a few areas of green as well.  It is set in sterling silver with a solid silver back, with fancy bezel wire and a special argentium silver bail.
