Beautiful Handmade Number 8 Turquoise Sterling Silver Dangle Earrings
These earrings are made with mini number eight turquoise. Great collection earrings as number eight mine is a historic rare mine famous for its orange webbing.
Number 8 turquoise range in color from light blue to blue-green to dark blue. It's always found with characteristic black, golden or brown spider web matrix, which makes them easy to identify. Number 8 is also known for its unusually large nuggets, the largest of which weighed an astonishing 150 pounds.
The Number 8 Turquoise Mine is located in Lynn mining district in Eureka County, Nevada. The Number 8 Turquoise Mine has been closed since 1976 due to the discovery of gold in the mine. Fortunately, Dowell Ward, the most recent owner of the mine still has a healthy stockpile of them.
Today, Number 8 turquoise is considered to be one of the most valuable turquoise on the market and is a great addition to any collection.
We choose every piece of jewelry based on the value of the stone. Unlike most of the Turquoise on the market, the stone has to be high quality (not stabilized, not color treated and not reconstituted).
We also love jewelry with unique character and great craftsmanship. What this means is that you are getting jewelry that is a showstopper and not to mention a great investment.
