This gorgeous, necklace is handcrafted using .925 Sterling Silver and Sonoran Gold Turquoise from Sonora, Mexico. The stones are not mined in veins but rather as individual nuggets typically found in clay deposits. Sonoran Gold Turquoise is known for its rich aqua blue, and two-tone blue and green, featuring beautiful golden matrix. This piece includes a large 2" pendant set in sterling sliver with a braided and hand saw cut border on a 10", six-strand silver heishi necklace.
