Stunning Bracelet featuring Genuine Apache Blue Turquoise set in Sterling Silver. Created by Navajo Artist Murphy Platero. Signed by the artist. The Apache Blue Mine turquoise mine, is a small mine with lots of potential. The mine is located near Tonopah, Nevada in the Candelaria Mountain range. In recent years the mine, (an open pit) has re-opened rendering Apache Blue turquoise with beautiful blue stones with eye popping black matrix. This high quality Apache turquoise is very rare and hard to find, even in this mine, but it's what every turquoise miner is searching for. Unfortunately only a small amount of this nice natural hard turquoise with really beautiful dark blue, webbed nuggets have been discovered. This turquoise is truly some of the nicest from Nevada.
Bracelet sizes are measured inside the bracelet, completely around and across the opening. If the reading on the tape measure shows 7", for example, that is the size we assign to it.
Find your bracelet size by wrapping a flexible measuring tape completely around your wrist so it fits like a bracelet. The reading on the tape will indicate your bracelet size.
Most bracelets can be opened up about a 1/4", or closed down about a 1/4" in order to get a good fit unless they are bracelets with inlaid turquoise or other gem stones or similar solid construction which cannot be opened or closed in any amount without damage to the bracelet and/or gem stones.
