How does Mother Nature produce intense green turquoise? That question has long plagued experts, yet here we are, some of the richest GREEN natural turquoise in the world, Nevada mined fifty years ago, cut into a gorgeous natural cabochon. Such quality typically goes to the better Native American silversmiths, this one by the notable LEE BEGAY.
By carving the design in a tufa stone, Lee poured molten silver into the carved cavity, producing a plate with his DRAGONFLY design, then forging it into this beautiful INGOT forged Sterling ring. Much of the tufa texture dominates the landscape, and a gorgeous bezel holds the Royston cab. Great combination by Lee Begay.
