“Old Style” Sterling Silver Bracelet Set With A Row Of 7 RARE Natural Bisbee Turquoise Stones Believed To Be Mined And Cut Sometime During The 1980’s Period Or Possibly Earlier. Masterfully Handmade And Designed By Navajo Artist CALVIN MARTINEZ.
In General, Natural or Non-Treated Turquoise Is Considered To Be Highly Desirable As It Represents The True And Unaltered Composition of The Stone. The Bisbee Turquoise Mine, Located In Bisbee, Arizona, Was Closed In 1974. The Supply Of Bisbee Turquoise Stones, Especially Those Found In Their Natural State, Has Become Quite Scarce. This RARE Commodity Is Highly Sought After By Many Astute Collectors.
