This pendant was created by Navajo Artist Joe Piaso Jr. The Sonoran Turquoise
stone really pops! Its a bright blue blending to emerald green with
yellow and beige. The stone sets in a smooth bezel with a thick carved silver border.
It comes with a very nice 18" sterling silver chain.
I'm told Sonoran is from a mine in Mexico
on the New Mexico / Arizona border.
It's marked sterling, signed and hallmarked.
It's 1 3/8" tall, plus 3/8" bail, by 1 1/8" at it's widest point.
The stone is 1 7/8" tall by 3/4" wide.
Pendant weight: 16.6 grams on my scale.
I placed a quarter there for scale.
