Unique Carico Lake Turquoise Natural Ring Signed By Terry Martinez Navajo Sz 7.5
This ring features a unique imperfect but very uncommon 100% natural top 5% Carico Lake Turquoise Center-stone with extremely rare combination of sky blue and lime green two in one with spider web (rare, polished, untreated, natural). This stone came directly from the mine owner, a personal friend of mine.
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.
Terry Martinez has been actively making jewelry and selling his art since 1976. Born in the blue water, New Mexico, and living now in Arizona, Terry comes from a large Navajo family of a long line of silversmiths and artisans. Known in the Southwest for his work with traditional methods like the labor intensive gold and silver sand cast process, developed in the 1800's, Terry also uses heavy stamp work and plate rolling to create his unique jewelry and silver bowls.
I 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).
I 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.
Ring surface measures 1-1/4 x 1 inch
