'Hard to believe, but every once and awhile the Drifter is speechless. This is al-most one of those times. This luscious ring was acquired at a little known place just off old Route 66—the kind of place one sometimes finds undiscovered treasures. The silversmithing is excellent (or you wouldn't be seeing it here), but it is the beautiful turquoise stone that is the star of the show. Three of four mines come to mind, so we won't postulate (or call it 'Royston'—which it's not!) —other than it is certainly one of the western American mines. Copper matrix is common in turquoise, but here it is uncommonly beautiful. It is a solid size 8, and the dimensions are 1 and 5/8th's-inches long, by 1 and 3/8th's-inches across. Weight is 18.8-grams, or .66-ounces. Hallmarked "PY." Complimentary USPS tracked Priority shipping within the U.S.
