Rare Morenci Turquoise & Tahitian Pearl Necklace
This is the necklace the artist choose to wear on the recent National TV Show Beyond The Hunt. This 17” necklace is a mix of rare turquoise and eighteen Tahitian pearls. Morenci is highly prized for its beautiful blue colors, which vary from light to a very dark blue. It is also known and become popular for its iron pyrite or ‘fool’s gold’ matrix. It was a by-product of the Morenci copper mine in Arizona. The fact that Morenci turquoise is no longer being mined along with its beautiful blue color makes Morenci very valuable in today’s turquoise market.
