This stunning high grade blue turquoise is gorgeous. TByrd matched the stones and designed the bezel for these four stone earrings. Avin Joe made that design happen. This quality of stone is hard to find anymore.
Mined in the 1970's in Kingman, its quality has never been equaled. The Kingman Copper mine (Mineral Park) has been around since about 1880s.The turquoise rock that was brought out of the mine in the 1970s and 1980s has been considered some of the best quality turquoise and the thought was that this would be the way the rock was always going to be. So much of this really great rock was not put aside as special.
In comparison, todays rock mined at Kingman is quite mediocre. So the only way to find this quality rock is to get it from someones vintage stash from almost 50 years ago. That is exactly what this lovely necklace set is made of.So enjoy this amazing one of a kind set of earrings! Truly a treazure for generations to come!
