Beautiful Handmade Sterling Silver Carico Lake Naja with 6mm Navajo Bead Chain
This beautiful handmade Sterling Silver Naja pendant features a medium cluster of light green to dark bluegreen grade AAA Carico Lake turquoise with minimal webbing on a 22" 6mm Navajo Bead chain.
Carico Lake turquoise range from beautiful shades of blue to lime green. The lime green color is due to the high levels of faustite and zinc. Although blue turquoise is the majority produced, in recent years lime green has been most valued for its rarity and unique color.
The Carico Lake Turquoise Mine is a historic mine named for its home on a dried up lake bed located in Lander County, Nevada. Due to the short amount of time it's allowed to be mined each year, the supply of Carico Lake Turquoise is extremely limited.
Due to its increased interest and limited supply, Carico Lake turquoise has become a valued investment.
Raymond Beard is a registered Navajo Indian. Currently he works out of Gallup, NM. He started to silversmith in 1978, and was taught by his brother-in-law. The first types of jewelry he made were Zuni, needlepoint cluster jewelry and inlay jewelry. As his skills improved, he moved on to making some Black Hills type of jewelry. His piece that he is most proud of is a large concho belt that he had made with a crow dancer in the middle and cluster stone around it.
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.
Naja measures 3" x 2-3/4"
