Turquoise Pendant 40
A Big Hunk of Beautiful Turquoise!
This is a large, incredible piece of gorgeous turquoise that comes from the Royston turquoise mine in Nevada. Jake was able to visit this mine twice when the owners allowed the public to dig in the tailings, but they have now discontinued this practice. Most Royston turquoise is found in thin veins, so a large piece like this is rare. Royston turquoise is prized for the high quality of the stone s well as the range of colors that come from this mine. This stone is a light green and is set off by the veins of the brown matrix rock for a great contrast. The setting is sterling silver square wire framing the back with prongs to hold the stone in place, topped by a three pronged fancy sterling bail.
