GOLDEN HILLS TURQUOISE:
In the Russian hills of Kazakhstan sits the GOLDEN HILLS mine. The Turquoise is only mined in the winter months during the freezing cold and snow as rains flood the mine during the summer. The location of the mine is remote and difficult to bring equipment in and out of. It is the only Turquoise known to have the unique coloring of bright blue with a Lavender undertone.
This large pendant is set in solid sterling silver with a single piece of Golden Hills turquoise measuring 2-1/8″ in total length including the beautifully stamped bail. The actual setting measures 1-5/8″ x 1-3/8″ .The wide flat silver that wraps around the stone makes for striking look. Simple in its design, this is a beautiful pendant.
