Mother Nature is Amazing! The pattern in the stone is called the matrix and it is unique for each stone. Genuine High Grade Pilot Mountain Mine Turquoise set in Sterling Silver Pendant. Created by Navajo Artist Artie Yellowhorse. Signed by the artist. 18", 2.2mm Sterling Silver Diamond Cut Rope Chain is included. 

The Yellowhorse trademark "Rising Sun" design is one of their most popular collections with its round or oval-domed center surrounded by small 'drops'or beads of silver, each one made by hand.

The Pilot Mountain Mine is located in western Nevada, east of the small town of Mina. As with most turquoise mines, this mine opened as a copper claim. Pilot Mountain turquoise was first mined around 1930 as a tunnel mine. Then it became an open pit mine when heavy equipment was available around 1970. The current owners of the claim have been mining the turquoise since 1989. While Pilot Mountain is considered an active mine, it is a very small operation. The miners go to the mine twice per year, bringing out only about 150 to 200 lbs. of rough stone each time. One of the current owners says one of the interesting parts of mining is "not knowing what you are going to hit next". Pilot Mountain turquoise forms in hard veins with color ranging from bright blue to dark blue with a greenish cast. Dark brown limonite mottled patterns are associated with this material. Most Pilot Mountain turquoise is called "grass roots", meaning the best deposits are found within ten feet of the surface.

I am a fan of #8 mine turquoise and this pendant did not disappoint. The color is wonderful and best of all, it was on sale.

Absolutely beautiful. Just as vibrant as the picture. The only issue is my finger is slightly too small for the size I ordered but that can be easily fixed by putting on my index finger rather than ring finger
