Here is an Old Pawn Native American Seafoam Turquoise nugget necklace. The nugget beads average 10mm and the necklace measures 21½" long. The turquoise is all natural and not dyed, it most likely came from the Lone Mountain Mine. It is an intense and deep blue color with black spider web matrix, it is nicely matched turquoise, but under close examination you can see the slight color variations that exist in natural (not dyed) gemstones. There are black pen shell heishi beads on the top half of the necklace. The ends of the necklace feature handmade sterling silver beads that are 5mm round and a sterling silver hook and eye clasp. It has been restrung so it is stable and very wearable.
This is a wonderful Old Pawn piece of jewelry. Sea Foam Turquoise is one of the rarer and most collectible type and there is little for sale in the market today.
