This pendant features a solid, untreated nugget of greenish blue Arizona turquoise. It is completely natural, as it came out of the ground. The stone measures 0.65 x 0.53 inches ( 16.6 x 13.6 mm), weighs in at 7.3 carats and is set in sterling silver.

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. Of these, the American southwest, particularly Arizona, is particularly famous for its fine material. These gems are still an important staple in Native American jewelry, and show a wide range of colors and patterns.

This stone is a really nice example. It has a rich, slightly green blue color and shows the classic 'bubblegum' shape that uncut turquoise is famous for. It is an exceptional example of a raw turquoise, completely natural and untreated.
