Desert Cactus with Morenci Turquoise Necklace
Copper electroformed Cactus with bail: 2 x 2-3/4 inch
Morenci Turquoise: 14 x 15mm
16 inch copper chain with lobster clasp
The pendant is made from a dried desert cactus skin that was found while out on a walk. I loved the texture and character of this piece. Quite a conversation piece.
Morenci Turquoise was mined in Southern Arizona and is one of the most famous and well-known American turquoise mines. It is highly regarded and sought after by collectors. The mine has been closed for many years and is hard to come by.
