Morenci Turquoise slab earrings with 14K yellow gold findings and ear wires. Vintage collection of four one of a kind pairs. Originally stabalized as most all turquoise is. I have further drilled, sanded and oiled them.
These hang with their thin sides facing out. I believe this a nice way to frame the face which inturn, is flattering on anyone. They will move back and forth but their biggest draw is what others see from the side. Beautiful blues with black pyrite matrix.
Morenci Turquoise : Is mined in southeastern Arizona, in Greenlee County. Morenci has an unusual matrix of irregular black pyrite, or fool's gold; when polished, the pyrite often looks like silver. It also is sometimes webbed in a darker shade of blue, called water webbed.
