Knotted Turquoise Nugget Necklace with Yellow and White Gold Clasp

Knotted Turquoise Nugget Necklace with Yellow and White Gold Clasp

Turquoise is a gemstone with deposits in Arizona, and this turquoise is from the Sleeping Beauty Turquoise mine in Globe, which had become one of the most important American turquoise mines in the world before it stopped producing turquoise in 2012 (the owners decided to focus on copper mining, which was more lucrative).

The turquoise was tumbled into nuggets and then hardened/stabilized through a proprietary, permanent and stable method called the Zachary process, which give the individual beads a high, glossy lustre and brilliance.

The necklace is approximately 17 inches long and has a white and yellow gold clasp. The largest nuggets measure in the approximately 15 x 20 mm range.
