Sometimes you just want to highlight the turquoise. The sterling silver has both a beautiful dark patina and bits of polished silver surrounding this special stone. Why is the stone special? This beautiful semi precious stabilized turquoise is from the #8 mine in Nevada. This mine was closed long ago and is no longer mined so the turquoise is limited. To have a wonderful handcrafted necklace with a beautiful stone from the #8 mine is extra special.
