Turquoise in a very interesting setting. The Pilot Mountain Turquoise comes from the Pilot Mountain Turquoise Mine in western Nevada--just east of the small town of Mina. It started as a tunnel mine copper claim in 1930.
It became an open pit mine in 1970. It is considered to be a smaller operation active mine. The turquoise is even prettier in person! The pendant measures 3" long including the 3/4" heavy sterling silver bail.
The pendant itself measures approximately 2-1/4" long and 7/8" wide. The gorgeous piece of Pilot Mountain Turquoise measures 1-5/8" by 7/8" in an unusual shape. Such a special stone in a special pendant.
This is a very good blue turquoise with some great webbing and matrix. Betta has added a row of nice sterling silver beading along the bottom half of the pendant. She has added two large sterling silver feathers, some sterling beads and some spirals of life--all highlighting the setting and the Pilot Knob Turquoise. Lee' and stamped "Sterling" on the back of the pendant. Very interesting pendant--sure to get many compliments.Please ignore the shadows and reflections in the pictures. The silver is all shiny! This Pilot Knob Turquoise pendant is a piece to be treasured!!
