Paula says -
"This is a heavy, well-made piece with a gorgeous natural turquoise stone from the Candelaria Mine. Stunning sterling silver setting!"
Comes with 23 inch sterling silver chain with lobster claw clasp.
The large bail opening enables you to wear this pendant with a collar or silver beads.
Calendaria turquoise is a hard, attractive good quality blue stone with an intermittent black or brown matrix. High-grade Candelaria is a translucent dark blue with a redish brown spiderweb matrix. The Candelaria turquoise mines are located in the large Candelaria Open Pit Copper, Silver, and Gold Mine northeast of Tonopah, Nevada. The ore company leases out claims to a few turquoise mines only infrequently. The finest Calendaria turquoise is now located in an area so difficult to work that it is almost unattainable, thus its scarcity makes it very collectible.
