A large, beautiful piece of stabililized Genuine Turquoise - unfortunately, I do not know its origin or the exact "species" of Turquoise it is, but I do have confirmation from a geologist who is also a lapidary.
I framed it in an elaborate woven copper wire frame. A hammered copper "ribbon" holds the piece firmly in place.
This is a large and very impressive piece.
Comes with a 24" faux-copper chain with a hand made (real) copper clasp.
Large Genuine Turquoise Oval
3" x 2 1/4"
I used pure copper wire, oxidized it to achieve a timeless "antiqued" look, polished it to bring out the copper highlights, and then sealed it to capture its patina and prevent further darkening. No further polishing will ever be needed. Protect from scratches and bumps against hard surfaces or other jewelry.
