This handcrafted statement ring features a gorgeous piece of Wild Horse Magnesite paired with a beautiful blue and chocolate-brown Number 8 Turquoise. The setting has been made with a solid sterling silver split-shank ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezel settings around each stone, and sterling silver trims and accents. The ring has then been sanded, oxidised in parts for contrast, and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand, using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!
Ring length: approx. 30mm
Ring width: approx. 21mm
I have created this ring in a size 10 1/2 (Australian sizes U 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
💎 WILD HORSE MAGNESITE LORE:
Wild Horse is the name given to the stone that is actually a mixture of Magnesite and Hematite. It is a fairly new stone that was discovered in the mid-90’s near the Globe copper mine in the Gila wilderness area of southern Arizona. Wild Horse is considered to be quite rare, as there is only one known source for the stone. This, paired with it’s well regarded beauty, means that the stone retains a high value and is a remarkably popular with collectors.
In terms of properties, Wild Horse is considered to be wonderful for boosting creativity, helping with relaxation, stress and meditation, self-love and romantic love.
💎 NUMBER 8 TURQUOISE LORE:
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. Among the Ancient Egyptians, Persians and Chinese, Aztecs and Incas of South America, and Native North Americans, Turquoise was sacred in its adornment and for power, luck, and protection.
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 Number 8 Turquoise mine is in the Lynn mining district in Eureka County, Nevada. It's famous for its black, golden red and brown spider web matrix set off with the unique bright powder blue turquoise background. The mine has now been depleted, and for this reason Number 8 Turquoise is considered to be extremely valuable.
