Dimensions

Pendant height: 1.50 Inches; Pendant width: 0.90 Inches

This pendant features a solid, untreated nugget of pure sky blue Armenian turquoise. It is completely natural, as it came out of the ground, except that I have polished one face to show the internal patterning. It measures 1.23 x 0.8762 inches ( 31.3 x 22.2 mm), weighs in at 25.1 carats and is set in 14k solid white gold.

Turquoise is one of the most ancient gemstones. From the earliest human civilizations it has been valued as a gem for its beautiful, striking color. One of the first major mines of turquoise was located in the Sinai peninsula, and its production supplied many of the gemstones in the treasures of the Egyptian pharaohs. It is also in this mine where Egyptian overseers and workers from the Levant developed a system of phonetic writing, giving birth to the very first alphabet. The mines in Egypt have largely gone dry, but other sources have been discovered around the world. The American southwest, particularly Arizona, is a well-known source, as are China and Colorado. One of the finest sources, however, is in modern Iran, yielding the fine blue variety known as Persian turquoise. Unlike many other sources, this turquoise is consistently hard and solid and does not require stabilization to be cut and set in jewelry.

This stone is from a nearby deposit in the same mountains, just across Iran's border in Armenia. While modern borders have shifted, this material is by all accounts equal in quality to fine Persian material. It is completely untreated, still clinging to porous white matrix, ranging in color from sky blue to deep blue to rich green. Soft turquoise requires special care during cutting, but this material was so solid I had no trouble cutting it and getting a great polish without any unusual techniques. Apparently the turquoise is a byproduct from a copper mine which only operates sometimes. It's apparently running now, since I have managed to source some very fine rough.

This stone is an exceptional example. It shows a rich, sky-blue turquoise with subtle spiderwebbing. I polished the front to show the pattern but left the back and sides raw and natural. It took a high glossy polish and is overall a truly gorgeous stone.
