Genuine Turquoise and Sterling Silver Pendant, 26.6 x 19.5mm. This is a one of a kind (ooak) art piece. I personally hand cut the turquoise gemstone, then hand forged the metalwork to create an original design. This stone is very blue, which is getting harder and harder to find. This material came from an old collection. The previous owner couln't recall what mine it came from. It has that robin's egg blue look of Sleeping Beauty, but who knows for sure.
Turquoise has a long history as a popular gem material. Turquoise was brought to Europe from Turkey via trade route. Turquoise comes in various shades of blue, green and blue green including sky blue and apple green. Color depends on the ration of copper to iron. Copper contributes to blue color while iron turns the blue to green. Turquoise is often found where copper deposits exist. The turquoise used in this piece comes from the famous mine in Kingman Arizona, which produces some of the world's most highly regarded turquoise.
