NEW! Beautiful blue Navajo oblong turquoise slab earrings. The artist has created two (2) matching cut and polished slabs of reconstituted blue turquoise and attached sterling silver ear hooks using sterling silver wire. Reconstituted turquoise is where they have used chips, chunks, and dust from real turquoise and mixed it with a strong solid clear epoxy-like substance that hardens and makes the substance workable. This process has most recently been used mixed with copper or brass where the metal appears to be a matrix in the turquoise. The finished product is very hard and not easy to break. A perfect material for such earrings!

Each slab measures 4 1/4" long by 5/16" wide expanding to 7/8" wide at the end. They are also approximately 3/32" thick. Including the ear hooks they measure a total of 4 15/16"" long (just shy of 5")! The earrings weigh 7.4 grams (14.9 grams per set). Made by Navajo artist Ella Garcia with sterling silver ear hooks. For those who like long dangle earrings, you'll love these!  $117.95
