Rare Carico Lake Turquoise Pendant ~ This incredible natural stone has a beautiful color and a perfect shape. The turquoise measures 20.5mm in diameter x 6.35 in thickness and polished into a domed cabochon. The stone shows wonderful natural matrix and a lovely fade of turquoise blues.
The hand crafted setting is 10k yellow gold, it is tested and stamped 10k. The pendant measures 1 3/8" long (including the bail) x 7/8" wide and it weighs 4.60g.
The pendant is in excellent antique condition. There is no damage to the turquoise, no cracks, chips or breaks. The natural matrix does have a rough finish and it is not filled to hide imperfections. The gold shows slight wear commensurate with age, however no repairs have been made. You will love this very rare old piece!
