STRIKING Vintage Native American handmade turquoise bracelet featuring a HUGE knock out turquoise stone with all the characteristics of RARE Natural Manassa turquoise mine. One thing I love about this bracelet is the extremely large look but made for a smaller wrist. The silver shank consists of 5 solid and twisted heavy wires which securely hold a HEAVY plate decorated by EXCEPTIONALLY HAND CRAFTED Silverwork and MAGNIFICENT turquoise stone. Well balanced with a phenomenal look this would make a valuable addition to any collection. Manassa Turquoise was mined in south central Colorado. Manassa Turquoise is known for its blue-green to green color with a golden or brown, non-webbed matrix. It runs primarily in veins hosted by a beautiful golden brown hard rock. It takes a skilled stone cutter to get the Turquoise out of this hard rock. Take a look at all the photos but keep in mind that they simply do not do this piece justice!
