The optimum characteristic for what is popularly called "boulder" turquoise (we prefer the name, "ribbon") is a distinct streak of turquoise coursing through the surrounding agate. The piece above is a perfect example. The streak, or "ribbon" is bright and wide in this stone. The silversmithing includes both hand-stamping and repousse'. Length of this pendant is almost two inches, excluding the bale. Width is 1.75-inches; weight is .68-ounce. It ships with an 18-inch solid Sterling silver chain. Hallmarked, "Gilbert Tom."
