Offered for sale: A Sterling Silver ring from the 1970s with a wonderful Turquoise Mountain cabochon bezel set with serrated edges on top of
the wide band.

Turquoise Mountain in the 1970s is a light-to-high blue color with both webbed and non-webbed matrix. "Birdseye" describes stones from this mine that show areas of light blue circled with darker blue matrix, resembling the eye of a bird. Turquoise Mountain is part of the Kingman mine but Turquoise Mountain is considered a"classic" mine in its own right because the turquoise is so different in appearance from the Kingman turquoise. Turquoise Mountain closed in the 1970s. Today , the Kingman Mine is operating again, specifically within the Turquoise Mountain peak. The Turquoise Mountain turquoise that is being excavated from this site looks significantly different from the 1970's stones, being lighter blue to green in color, with primarily non-webbed matrix. Turquoise Mountain remains highly collectible and is easily distinguished from other stones coming from the Kingman mine.

The turquoise in this ring is the earlier Turquoise Mountain turquoise with its wonderful dark and light blue color.which is very difficult to obtain
today. The top of this ring measures 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches. The turquoise is bezel set with serrated edges and sits on top of the 5 wire wide band.
The ring is marked 'JLR' in script on the back along with the Sterling mark. The ring is a size 7 1/4.
