Number 8 Turquoise Pendant in Copper
Beautiful Number 8 Turquoise Pendant in wire wrapped Copper.
Cabochon created by Monkeylion Designs. This Cabochon has been stabilized. Gemstones are stabilized to make them more durable and to keep the color from changing in softer stones.
This rare and highly prized turquoise comes from the Number 8 Mine located west of the Tuscarora Range in the Lynn Mining District of Nevada. The mine has been depleted since 1961. Only limited reserves of #8 are in existence. The powder blue cloud puffs of turquoise against a brown/beige matrix are a trademark of Number 8 Turquoise.
Approximately 1 3/4" long and 1" wide.
There is a small divet in the back as shown in the picture with the arrow.
This pendant has been antiqued, polished and sealed.
Sealed with Protectaclear.
ProtectaClear is a clear, protective coating that is tough enough to protect jewelry and is safe for wear against skin. ProtectaClear is practically invisible once applied and will seal and protect jewelry from tarnish, oxidation, and corrosion
