Finally found the pieces and pieced the receipt together. The only necklace for sale is the 2-strand with the 747 cts. Of high grade Morenci slices.. The other masterpiece is a one strand necklace with the 368 cts.
It is not for sale, at least not yet. Hence, these are the only "high Grade Morenci slices and heshie" necklaces from Don Hoel.Once they are gone, they are gone for good. NOTE: 747 + 368 = 1,115 cts. See Pictures #4 and #5. Picture #1 equals the color of "high grade" Morenci slices Necklace vs. The blue of "Lander County mining, Cresscent Valley, Nevada" cabochons (see receipt in Pictures #4 and #5; the receipt is not just a COA) -- compare. Picture #2 equals the color of "high grade" Morenci slices Necklace vs. Stoned Wheat Thins' blue -- compare.
A well-known expert says, Certificates of authenticity no matter who present them are worthless; your receipt is your legal document... Since we have a Harvard man on board, this is no news to us. Pictures #4 and #5 clearly state, high grade Morenci slices...
" High grade Morenci turquoise cannot be "stabilized since the gemstone is quite dense, tight, compact, or solid-hard for liquid plastic (or stabilizing agent) to penetrate it. Besides, you will not be able to scratch a high grade Morenci turquoise, itself (the blue part), with a metal nail; however, matrix or natural fissures do not count.
A stabilized "rock" (or'turquoise,' if you must insist) is as good as plastic. Indeed, you can absolutely scratch it. Welcome, If a piece does not have info about the artist, etceteras, then simply enjoy the masterpiece when it adorns your person. If, however, you find extra tidbits (outside of the receipt) due to our extensive, diligent research, then consider yourself lucky. Many store owners back in the day were not as knowledgeable compared to our "Googled" (with social media in the mix) generation...
BUT, do your own sleuthing, in the end. As regards to the necklace's appearance, we, personally, have never worn it.Do not let it pass you by. Yes, it is that rare.
When was the last time you have seen a necklace made of high grade Morenci slices... Please do not expect the turquoise to be like freshly made glass without matrix, inclusions, fissures, veins, and nature's beautiful flaws.
If you have never heard of the legendary Don Hoel, please do some research. Actual color and shape may vary from pictures due to glare, digital camera phenomenon, lighting, your computer settings, and other factors. Thank you for stopping by.
NOTE: This necklace will have tamper-security stickers -- Void If Removed. The high quality, 2-strand, 747 cts. Morenci slices necklace is the only one being auctioned off; you will get nothing more, nothing less.
