This pendant has been made with old stock Bisbee turquoise, mined in the 1970's. Left completely natural & untreated the gem was gently smoothed to preserve its natural beauty. The gemstone nugget has a stunning, deep turquoise blue color. Several veins of golden pyrite run through it.

Sterling silver bail, dark oxidized. The turquoise can move freely on the bail so it always hangs perfectly around the neck.

Bisbee turquoise is perhaps one of the most valued and best types of turquoise ever produced.
In the late 1950's, a deposit of Turquoise was found in the Lavendar Pit region of the Bisbee Mine. Having only ever been mined by one independent miner for a short 2 year period from 1972-1974, the turquoise is primarily a by-product of the worlds largest copper mine.
The turquoise is quite hard and is one of the most expensive today, as very little quantities of this amazingly beautiful gem are available on the market.

A unique gemstone pendant for men and women alike. Also a unique wedding gift for your rustic and outdoors themed wedding. Turquoise is the traditional gift for your 5th and 17th anniversary and an alternate gift for your 11th anniversary. Turquoise is a December birthstone.
