Moon Fire Turquoise: Royston Turquoise Lariat Necklace
Royston Turquoise Lariat Necklace: Handcrafted of sterling silver and genuine turquoise by Moon Fire Turquoise jeweler Jennifer Story in Seattle, Washington.
Sourced from mines in the American Southwest.
Royston is a mining district located northwest of Tonopah, Nevada. It consists of several mines, most notably the Bunker Hill, Oscar Wehrend and the largest, Royal Blue. It produces a variety of turquoise, ranging in color from deep green to intense light blue. Some stones even combine two colors. Stones from this area feature a heavy, brown matrix. Royston is known for producing very high quality turquoise, but it is a small mining operation and there is a limited amount available. It is considered by many to be rare and collectible.
Made with genuine mined turquoise. All of our artisan created products will be unique and may have slight variances due to our production process.
Sterling silver naturally tarnishes and oxidizes over time. We recommend a polishing cloth made for silver jewelry to keep it looking new.
