This simple 4-pronged setting of sterling silver proudly displays a 13x15mm, oval Arizona turquoise stone. Ring size 7 (USA).
Copper, absorbed by rainwater and left behind in the crevices of igneous rocks, mixed with other irons and minerals and formed the beautiful blue hues of Arizona turquoise.
The beautiful dark marbling seen here in this exquisite deep blue turquoise is actually the matrix, or remaining host rock around which the turquoise has formed.
Turquoise is believed to be one of the very first stones to adorn the human body because of its stunning beauty, malleability, and its restorative healing properties.
