We hope you enjoy the information we have created to share with you.
The Turquoise in Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry varies substantially depending on which American Turquoise Mine the Turquoise came from. Carico Lake Spiderweb Turquoise runs from a lime Turquoise to light blue colorations with dark green, brown or black webbing. Lone Mountain Spiderweb Turquoise is usually a light to sky blue colour with black spiderweb matrix. Lander Blue Spiderweb Turquoise is most known for its deep rich dark blue colour with jet black and tight spiderweb matrix. There are many other types of Spiderweb Turquoise that we will show you in this document as well as additional pages we will ad.
Lander Turquoise is very rare, in fact, there was only about 100 pounds of high grade Lander Blue Spiderweb Turquoise that ever came out of the mine. It is the most expensive American Turquoise today, (2010,) running as high as $350.00 per carat. Jewelry made with Spiderweb Lander Turquoise can get very expensive, however, if you are a Turquoise connoisseur it is priceless.
Here are two Lander Blue Spiderweb Turquoise Necklaces. The piece on the left was made in 14ky Gold with a large rectangle Lander Blue Stone, this is a very nice Lander Blue Turquoise Necklace which was Navajo Handcrafted. The Lander Blue Necklace on the right is a simple necklace that highlights the rare Turquoise gemstones. Both of these are good examples of real Lander Blue Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry.
Carico Turquoise is from northern Nevada, it is known for its lime Turquoise, but it also produces beautiful blue and both colours produce Spiderweb Turquoise as well. Carico Lake Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry is highly collectible as it is carefully controlled by Ernie Montoya of Albuquerque, NM (mine owner and Turquoise connoisseur). Carico Lake Turquoise Jewelry is available at this point, however, the mine has been closed and supplies of the material is dwindling. Carico Lake Turquoise is in some of the finest Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry being produced today.
Lone Mountain Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry has always been scarce as the mine produced wonderful Spiderweb Turquoise but not in tremendous amounts, in addition, the mine is no longer in production. The Navajo Cluster Bracelet on the left is a beautiful example of Lone Mountain Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry. It has many stones for you to get a good understanding of the beauty of this Turquoise. The Spiderweb Turquoise Necklace on the right is another classic example of Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry with Lone Mountain Turquoise. You can see the different variations of the matrix configurations in these stones from the stones in the bracelet.
Above are two Native American Handcrafted Bracelets with Spiderweb Turquoise Stones. The Bracelet on the left has a Tibetan Spiderweb Turquoise Stone surrounded by Sugilite Stones. The webbing has a nice and consistent pattern which is desirable by collectors. Although this is not American Turquoise, Tibet produces some very nice Spiderweb Turquoise and it can be found in Southwestern Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry being made today. The Navajo Handcrafted Spiderweb Turquoise Bracelet on the right was made with Indian Mountain Turquoise. This is a beautiful and classic Navajo Turquoise Bracelet with heavy stamp work setting these beautiful Spiderweb Turquoise Stones off. The Indian Mountain Turquoise Mine has been out of production for over twenty years.
Here are two good examples of Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry. The Spiderweb Turquoise Necklace on the left was made with Number Eight Turquoise, which is from Nevada. This American Turquoise Mine produced more Spiderweb Turquoise than any other Turquoise Mine in the history of America. This is an older piece and was Navajo Handcrafted. The Spiderweb Turquoise Ring on the right was produced by Durango Silver Company, it has a Blue Wind Spiderweb Turquoise Stone. The Blue Wind Turquoise Mine had a short life much like the Lander Blue Mine and was also located in Lander County, Nevada. Blue Wind was another fine American Turquoise Mine that produced exceptional deep blue Spiderweb Turquoise in the 1970's and Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry made with Blue Wind Turquoise is very rare. Its value is in the same range as Lander Blue.
Above are two pieces of Southwestern Turquoise Jewelry with Tortoise Spiderweb Turquoise. The Turquoise Pendant on the left was Navajo Handcrafted and has a mint green Spiderweb Tortoise Turquoise Stone. The earrings on the right have Yellow Spiderweb Turquoise Stones from the Tortoise Turquoise Mine as well. Yellow Turquoise is very scarce and Yellow Spiderweb Turquoise is almost never scene. The Tortoise Turquoise Mine produces small amounts of Yellow Spiderweb Turquoise and Jewelry items made from this rare Turquoise can be purchased on occasion from Durango Silver Company.
Here are two Spiderweb Turquoise Rings. The Ring on the left was made with Lime Green Spiderweb Turquoise from the Tortoise Turquoise Mine in Nevada, The Ring on the right has a piece of Yellow Turquoise from the Tortoise Turquoise Mine that also has spider webbed matrix. Both of these Spiderweb Turquoise Rings were made by John Hartman of Durango Silver Company.
Above are two Mens Turquoise Rings with Spiderweb Turquoise. Both Rings have Tibetan Spiderweb Turquoise. The Ring on the left has smoky Spider webbing in beautiful sky blue Turquoise and the Ring on the right has a more open webbing pattern in its matrix. Many people like the more open webbing patterns in Turquoise Stones and Tibet Turquoise produces a lot of material such as this, it is beautiful! Both of these Spiderweb Mens Turquoise Rings were produced by Durango Silver Company.
Here are two nice pieces of American Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry. The Ring on the left was made with a fine quality of Dry Creek Spiderweb Turquoise cut by John Hartman of Durango Silver Company. Dry Creek Turquoise produced a fair amount of Spiderweb Turquoise and it is beautiful, it has a light sky blue colour with red webbing which is stunning! The Turquoise Bracelet on the right has a large Blue Wind Spiderweb Turquoise Stone. The webbing patterns vary in this stone substantially which gives it a lot of character. Large Spiderweb Turquoise stones are less common in American Turquoise and often found in Tibetan as well as Chinese Turquoise.
To the left is a Spiderweb Turquoise Bead Necklace, the Turquoise is from Tibet and is beautiful. We use a lot of Tibetan Turquoise when we can find good natural Spider webbed Stones. On the right is a Mens Turquoise Ring with a White Buffalo Spiderweb Turquoise Stone. It is rare to find White Buffalo Spiderweb Turquoise but when you do it is beautiful. Both of these pieces of Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry were produced by Durango Silver Company.
As you can see above, Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry has a beauty of its own and most certainly worth hunting for if you are a collector of Turquoise Jewelry. Spiderweb Turquoise is a phenomenon in mother nature and Spiderweb American Turquoise is rare Turquoise and is highly collected and valuable. As an investment for the future, Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry and especially American Spiderweb Turquoise Jewelry will be great as Turquoise Mining in America has seen its better years - due to governmental restrictions and cost of mining, American Turquoise will become harder to come by and American Spiderweb Turquoise will become nonexistent.
