Product Overview

The setting is a Solid Sterling Silver Casting with hand made setting and trim on top

This Turquoise is Natural and comes from the famous Bisbee mine in Arizona
This band features a pierced, stamped and engraved design

The famous Bisbee Arizona "Lavender Pit" mine is known worldwide for its massive size and the host rock does have a natural Red/Brown or sometimes lavender color; Bisbee turquoise formed in and near this same abundant host limestone and breccia material as well as other mineral variations

The lavender name is so appropriate but is actually referencing a Phelps Dodge executive from when the mine was fully operational.

(the mine closed in the 1970's)
