NEW! Heavy solid Navajo #8 Mine turquoise shadowbox pendant. The silversmith uses a beautiful and highest quality  turquoise nugget from the distinct Number 8 Mine. The beautiful turquoise nugget is highly polished and set into a smooth silver bezel. Mounted to a blackened scorched silver base the artist encircles the stone with a silver border creating a shadowbox effect. He then wraps the outer edge with twisted wire. The artist finishes the pendant by attaching a large bale with a five (5) feathered prayer fan mounted to the front. This piece of turquoise with the black and reddish brown spiderweb matrix is rated as the highest collectable type from the Number 8 Mine and warrants high dollar per carat, hence the cost of the pendant.  Click Here to read about the Number 8 Mine and the turquoise it produces.

The pendant measures 1 1/2" by 1 1/4" across and including the bale is 2 1/8" tall. The bale inside measurement is 1/2" by 7/16" across so it will handle a fairly large necklace. The stone itself measures 1 1/8" by 15/16" across. The complete pendant weighs 19.2 grams and is stamped ROIE JAQUE - STERLING by the Navajo artist.  $424.95
