This outstanding Necklace displays 2 Strands of elegant Fox Turquoise, in vivid shades of blue and green with chocolate brown matrix. The Fox Turquoise mine — located in Lander County, Nevada — was one of Nevada's most successful mines, with production of some half a million pounds of Turquoise. The mine has been closed for quite some time now, but Fox Turquoise continues to enter the market from private collections. Our Turquoise has been "tab cut," or cut into narrow petals or slabs that have been end-drilled. Turquoise tabs have a very distinct look, exemplifying classic Pueblo style. The Turquoise stones are graduated, ranging in length from 15mm to 30mm. The blend of blues, greens and brown is striking, with each individual piece unique. We've paired the Fox Turquoise with 3mm Turquoise Heishi, amplifying the Necklace's blue tones. Each larger piece of Turquoise is separated by 3 pieces of Heishi, adding structure and visual interest. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 210 grams and the 2 Necklace strands are 25 inches and 27-1/2 inches long.
