“Old Style” Sterling Silver Pendant Set With A RARE Natural Bisbee Turquoise Stone Mined And Cut Sometime During The Early 1990’s Period Or Possibly Earlier. Masterfully Handmade And Designed By Navajo Artist RAYMOND DELGARITO.
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.
