Product Description

Genuine Crow Springs Turquoise set in Sterling Silver Pendant. Created by Navajo Artist Walter Vandever. Signed by the artist. Free 18 inch Sterling Silver Chain with purchase. The Crow Springs Mine is located near Tonopah, Nevada. The Crow Springs Turquoise Mine was closed for many years. It recently was opened by Dennis and Lucy Cordova. The Smith family previously owned the mine. This family had been mining turquoise in Nevada since the 1870s. In 1909, William Petry discovered a deposit one mile southwest of the Crow Springs claim. In 1939, Ann Cooper Hewitt, heiress to the Cooper Hewitt fortune, made from inventing the mercury-vapor lamp and the first fluorescent lighting, filed claim to the mine and built a home there, which she called AnnJax. She did little work on the property and subsequently abandoned it.
