Number 8 Mine High Grade Turquoise+Hand Fabricated Sterling Silver+Bar Style Necklace Pendant
One of a kind, treasured for it's soft powder blue and red/brown matrix...this natural (untreated) Number 8 turquoise pendant is high-grade and the perfect addition to your collection. An heirloom piece worth passing on for generations!
My hand fabricated silver work and hand shaped bezel holds this stunning gem securely in place, while a unique double bale supports the pendant on a 20 inch sterling silver beaded ball chain.
The pendant is marked on the back with both my signature heart and my initials "hw".
The measurements for the pendant is approximately 1 and 1/4 inches (horizontal) by 5/8 inch(vertical). It is about an 1/8 inch deep. The two bales are about a 1/2 inch long each. The spread/width between the two bales about 1 and 1/4 inches. It ships on a 20 inch sterling silver chain, but you can easily remove it and place on your own chain if desired. The loops are approximately 6mm round.
A few tidbits about this lovely turquoise:
It is valued for its trademark spider-web matrix with various shades of gold, black, and brown lines that lace through its unique powder blue stone.
The best, natural spiderweb Material from the #8 Turquoise mine is rare and highly coveted today.
High-grade Number 8 turquoise is by far some of the finest turquoise to ever have come out of Nevada.
