Sterling Silver cuff bracelet with a 24x30 mm Mojave Turquoise gemstone set in a sterling silver bezel. This bracelet is approximately 1" wide with a unique overlay texture.
Mojave Turquoise is not a natural stone but a composite of real turquoise and copper.
Mojave Turquoise is crafted using only natural turquoise nuggets mined and processed at the Kingman Turquoise mine in Kingman Arizona. In the process chunks of natural turquoise are combined together (some with a copper matrix) and stabilized to harden the stone (note – almost all turquoise on the market today is stabilized).
