This large handcrafted pendant was created by Navajo Artist John Nelson. The Boulder Turquoise stone
is simply gorgeous. It has earthy golden browns and sea greens. The stone
sets in a smooth bezel and is surround by twisted silver wire with silver raindrop beads.
It's marked sterling and signed John Nelson.
The pendant is 1 1/2" tall, plus 1/2" bail, by almost 1 1/2" at it's widest point
The stone is 1 1/2" tall by 7/8" wide
Pendant weight: 17.6 grams on my scale.
I placed a quarter there for scale.
Boulder Turquoise is sometimes called Ribbon Turquoise and it's cut in such a way that the
turquoise is the accent in the mother rock. It often looks like a river flowing through
a desert or landscape.
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
