This necklace features a natural turquoise nugget from the now closed Castle Dome mine. Pinned in place in a sterling silver texture wire bail. A hand cast sterling silver crescent moon with engraved star details strung on 18 inches of sterling silver chain.
Each turquoise nugget is natural so each are one of a kind at around 12-14mm in size.
Each moon has hand carved star details so they may vary but are similar to the one in the photo.
The Castle Dome turquoise mine is located about 30 miles from the Sleeping Beauty mine, near Globe, Arizona. The Castle Dome mine has not been in operation since the early 1970s. The turquoise deposit had been depleted. Castle Dome was operated as an open pit mine.
