This pendant has been made from old Bisbee turquoise, mined in the 1970's. Left completely natural & untreated the gem has a beautiful rugged character and a stunning blue turquoise color. Several veins of golden pyrite run through it.

  • 33 x 31.5mm (1.29x1.24 inches) big turquoise gemstone, weighing 17.76 carats
  • black sterling silver chain in the length of your choice

Sterling silver bail, black 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.
