Description

Hand rolled Natural turquoise heishi from the Skyline Mine in Nevada with a sterling silver clasp

These exquisite stones are natural Skyline Turquoise. Each piece is hand cut from rough turquoise. Piki drills, shapes, and polishes each stone with precision and an eye for detail.  The slices of turquoise are so very precisely cut, they slide through your fingers like silk. The range of colors of these gorgeous stones is extraordinary providing the most beautiful deep shades of turquoise, blue and green. They are very slightly graduated in size.

The relatively unknown Skyline Turquoise Mine is in Lander County, Nevada. It is listed in Turquoise Deposits of Nevada by Frank R Morrissey under the name of Rufan, in the Crescent Valley turquoise area near the New Lander and 2 miles from the Lander Blue. It still produces beautiful colors of turquoise.

Condition: Excellent – original condition – new
Provenance: Purchased from the artist
