Large Rutilated Quartz and Black Widow Mine Turquoise
A truly extraordinary rutilated quartz is suspended from a handmade chain of sterling silver wire, each link meticulously wrapped. The quartz weighs 60 carats (wow!) and is dazzling with darting needles of silvery rutil. Above the large quartz are carefully coiled links of sterling silver accented with a blue peruvian opal of high quality, and two specimens of turquoise from the Black Widow Mine of Nevada.
This necklace is absolutely one-of-a-kind, and features some unusually beautiful stones. The necklace adjusts from 16 to 18 inches and the pendant drop is 2 5/8 inches.
