This handcrafted pendant features the most incredible piece of genuine Kingman Turquoise that measures approximately 27mm x 14mm. The stone is absolutely stunning, and has a design on it that resembles a gorgeous ocean floor. The setting has been made with a solid sterling silver 16 gauge (1.4mm) bail, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a fine silver bezel, and sterling silver twisted trims. The setting has then been sanded smooth, oxidised in parts for contrast, and strung onto a 72cm organic cotton cord. This means that it can be worn as a choker, a long layering necklace, and anything in between! Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!

💎KINGMAN TURQUOISE LORE:
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors.
Wearing Turquoise is said to bring strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and good fortune. It is a symbol of friendship, aids wearers while traveling and brings peace to the home.
The Kingman Turquoise Mine is one of the oldest and highest producing Turquoise Mines in America. It is located in the Acerbate Mountains 14 miles northwest of Kingman, Arizona in the United States. It was originally discovered well over 1000 years ago and was actually part of a Turquoise boom around 1000 AD when the Mayan culture was using a lot of Turquoise for self adornments and ceremonial items.
