Adrienne - SOLD

Adrienne is simple but showcases very rare and lovely white turquoise or buffalo turquoise as it's affectionately named. Pewter bead caps secure the lovely stones and powdered almond swarovski pearls as topping. 925 silver base and white gold plated earhooks. Measures 4cm in length.

"Turquoise gets its color from the heavy metals in the ground where it forms. Blue turquoise forms when there is copper present, which is the case with most Arizona turquoises. Green turquoise forms where iron is present, the case with most Nevada turquoises. Sacred Buffalo turquoise forms where there are few heavy metals present, which turns out to be a very rare occurence. The lack of any specific color consistency makes this stone distinctive and unique from other turquoises. To date, no other vein of this turquoise has been discovered anywhere else and when this current vein runs out, that will be the last of it. Because this tuquoise is as rare as the sacred buffalo, the Indians call it "Sacred Buffalo" Turquoise."
