This is a superb Navajo cluster pendant with nice turquoise from a mine that closed in 2012. Sleeping Beauty Mine stones, when they can be bought, have become very expensive. For a long time Sleeping Beauty turquoise was sort of the "go-to" turquoise for Native American jewelry makers—especially those from Zuni Pueblo. Here you can see why. Sleeping Beauty has a luscious blue color, and, at one time because of its proliferation, Sleeping Beauty turquoise was very affordable. This is a fairly large pendant at two-inches long—not counting the half-inch inside diameter bale. Width is 1.5-inches at its widest. Weight of the pendant is 19.5-grams, or .68-ounces. Hallmarked with two crossed arrows. Complimentary USPS tracked Priority shipping within the U.S.
