These Shield Dangle Earrings are made with the famous #8 Spider-Web Turquoise.
The earrings are stamped Sterling and signed by the Artist and measure 1.5” long and 7/8” wide.
It is identified by its unique bright powder blue/green background and distinctive brown Spider Web matrix. It was discovered in 1925 and mined until 1976. Since then the mine has been closed and only a previous existing stock pile remains. This turquoise is considered a collectors item because no more is expected to surface once the reserve is gone. This is some of the last number turquoise to be had which makes it a special addition to your collection.
