Kingman Grade Turquoise Cabochon With Zinc Flashes - Persephone
Stunning blue Kingman grade Turquoise Cabochon infused with Zinc, creating a fabulous contrast between the soft blue of the Turquoise and the lustrous, contemporary look of the metal. From the Kingman Turquoise Mine in Arizona, USA this cabochon has been hand cut and polished in the UK.
A simple Sterling Silver bail and pretty 18in Sterling Silver diamond cut Snake chain finish this pendant perfectly.
We do not use reconstituted turquoise (this is small pieces of stone and turquoise chalk powder with dye and plastic binder).
The talisman of Kings, Shamans and Warriors, Turquoise is one of the world's most ancient gems thought to have been mined as early as 6000 BC.
Its name derives from the French pierre tourques meaning "Turkish Stone", as it first arrived in Europe via Turkey, originating in Iran.
Turquoise is very porous so all our jewellery made from this stunning gemstone is "stabilised" by impregnating the stone with a suitable substance.
Often given as a token of friendship it is said to provide calm and protection to its wearer.
Turquoise is a traditional birthstone for December, one of the seven Zodiac stones for Taurus and an accepted gem for an 11th Weeding Anniversary.
