Product Overview

New Sterling Silver Men's Ring with Bisbee Arizona Turquoise made by Native American Navajo Artist Russell Sam

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

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 some say lavender color; most Bisbee turquoise formed in and near this same host limestone material
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)

This Bisbee Turquoise gem weighs approximately: 18.83 carats 

This gemstone is NOT stabilized or treated, only mined, backed, carved and polished


This Bisbee stone is approximately 24 MM long and 16 MM wide

Natural Bisbee turquoise gemstones such as this piece are extremely rare and collectable

This gem exhibits classic Bisbee characteristics:
Gem Blue Turquoise in a lake effect pocket, with some  "smoky" areas, limestone, quartz, and calcite breccia matrix or host rock

Russel uses traditional casting techniques, forming methods and individually sizes his rings. His jewelry is hand made and will show evidence of tool marks, scratches, pits and other small flaws in the castings and stones
