Extremely RARE Sleeping Beauty Robins Egg Turquoise Heishi Jacla Navajo Necklace
For sale is this RARE robin's egg blue heishi necklace! From tip to tip it is 19.5" long and the carved corn shaped bead in the middle is about 1.25" long. This soft, brilliant, baby blue necklace is for a lover of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise or simply a collector. The stone has minimal matrix and it even has white swirls throughout showing its undyed condition typical of this mine. This mine has stopped producing turquoise for several years now. For that reason and for its similarity to Persian turquoise (most expensive turquoise in the world), and for the fact it is made into heishi (not standard round beads) this piece is very unique and rare.
The cones and hooks are sterling silver. The piece is preowned and in vintage condition, so expect very visible signs of wear including heavy patina and tarnish. It was hand made, so keep in mind it will have perfect "imperfections" from the Navajo artist.
