This Turquoise Necklace set was inlaid by Dillon Hartman with natural Bisbee Turquoise. The design was derived from the original patterns of Cecil Mickelson and Bob Mathews from their Bisbee Jewelry manufacturing company in Durango Colorado in the 1960's. Durango Silver Co purchased the balance of the Durango Bisbee Collection in 2002 and now has one of the largest collections of Bisbee Turquoise in the world. Bisbee Turquoise is known to be the most mineral rich Turquoise on earth and to have special holistic qualities for spiritual and metaphysical powers to Navajo Medicine Men and healers from around the world.
