We're back! Now posting "Latest Acquisitions"
We carry this "stone" in earrings, pendants, rings and two sizes of bar necklaces. We currently have a few dozen of these. Frankly, look alike, but we'll post a couple more of them just for grins. The reason these 18-inch (polished Sterling chain), 1.5-inch wide and 5/8th's-inch tall bar necklaces haven't been posted on this site prior is because they sell too quick to photo and post them. The Navajo buy this material in a compressed "brick" about the size of a house brick. One of the well-known turquoise mines apparently takes pieces of turquoise, spiney oyster shell and bronze and puts the mixture into a machine that applies huge amounts of pressure which turns these elements into a hardened brick. Since then, we've gone through hundreds of pieces made from this strange mixture. We call it what the mine owners call it—turquoise, spiney and bronze mix—and not a coffee flavor or type of dishware. Hallmarked "DS," which is Donovan Skeets. Always free priority shipping.
