Kingman “Spider Web” turquoise Necklace set BC 1353

$3,499.00

Acclaimed Navajo artist Albert Jake created this piece. This style of stamping is referred to as ” Cold Chisel”. It is a very difficult process as the silver is the hardest to work when it is cool. The straight line marks are done with a very heavy hammer and solid line stamp. Exact pressure and precision is needed to do this style. The pendant and bail have a total length of over 3″ and width of 2″. This is a large pendant. The beaded necklace measures 18″ and the earrings dangle to the length of 1″1/4. The pendant is removable making the set versatile.

Kingman “Spider web” Turquoise

The Kingman mine in northwestern Arizona was one of the largest turquoise mines in North America. The terms “Kingman” or “high blue” refer to the blue color usually displayed in this stone. It has become a color standard in the industry. The mine became famous for its rounded, bright blue nuggets with black matrix. Few turquoise mines produced nuggets, especially of this quality. Old natural Kingman Turquoise is rare. The Colbaugh’s own this mine and the turquoise Mountain mine, their company name is Colbough Processing. They have recently gone back into the section of the Kingman mine and are digging and bringing some new Natural Kingman Turquoise.
