Carol Krena Sterling Silver Tufa Cast Cuff with Number 8 Turquoise Cabochon

Number 8 Turquoise has become one of the most valuable and appreciated types of turquoise by collectors. Located in Nevada, the mine produced high quality turquoise consistently light blue in color with an attractive spider-web matrix of various shades of black, brown and gold. Since the depletion of the mine in 1961, there is a very limited amount of the high grade stone in existence.
