Beautiful boulder turquoise stones.
Paula says -
"This extraordinary concho belt is Earth and Sky such a beautiful turquoise sky color cradled by the warm rich tones of mother earth. Wonderful.
"Total length is 50 inches and it can be fastened anywhere along the way! This belt will fit just about anyone!"
Very well made with substantial rings and links and fastener. 50 inches long and can be fastened anywhere between the conchas to make it fit almost anyone.
Conchos are approximately 1 1/4" x 1".
Boulder Turquoise, also called Ribbon Turquoise, refers to how the stone is cut, not where it comes from. Turquoise forms in veins of various widths within boulders, or "mother rock". Most often these veins are cut out of the surrounding rock to harvest pure turquoise pieces. But when the stone is cut to show the mother rock as the main feature with the original vein or ribbon of turquoise running through it as an accent it is called Boulder Turquoise.
