Item Description

A sculptural vein of beautiful rich sky-blue turquoise courses across the sawed and polished quartz-rich nodule on the colorful rarity. This excellent piece is from less well-known turquoise mines, that were worked by Native Americans prior to Spanish contact. Ex Al Kidwell Collection. Undoubtedly older material with the cloth labels on the back. Very seldom on the market from this locale.
