“Old Style” Sterling Silver Bracelet Set With A RARE Oval Shaped Natural Bisbee Turquoise Stone. Masterfully Handmade And Designed Circa The Late 1980’s Period By Navajo Artist DELBERT GORDON. Preserved In A Collector’s Vault And Never Worn.
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 Making This RARE Commodity Highly Sought After By Many Astute Collectors.
