This is a very sought after Green turquoise. The green is said to be fairly uncommon as mining has slowed in recent years. The color difference from your typical blue turquoise is because of the stronger presence of Iron rather than aluminum which in turn for this luscious green color. So, yes, this is a completely natural earth mined turquoise. This ring was designed and crafted by Ray Begay a well known Navajo artist. The ring spans a length of 1 1/2 Inches with a 1 1/8" width. The green turquoise is bezel set in a saw tooth setting. The turquoise is surrounded by a lovely and cut double frame. The shank is a simple double shank which cascades int oa single band in the back. The ring is fully hallmarked and in excellent condition with minimal wear.

A bit about our mother; Susan (Sue) Okey : She was the most uplifting, happy, loving, generous and kind lady I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and loving. She was the mother to 3 daughters and one son, myself being the youngest of the bunch. She had a passion of exquisite and unusual finely crafted works of art. She was a very honest and reputable estate and antique Jewelry dealer for well over 40 years. Her passion for Native American works of art started about 20 years ago. She recognized and adored the modern work of various Native American artists which are filled with amazing stories and spirit. She is missed greatly by us all. We hope you will enjoy the passion with her in her hand selected pieces.
