Fox turquoise range from gorgeous shades of green to aqua blue. A majority of Fox turquoise come in nugget or vein form. Fox turquoise is very hard and suitable to be made into jewelry. The Fox Turquoise Mine, located near Lander County, Nevada is one of the most famous and productive American turquoise mines and is still in operation today.
Dowell Ward purchased the mine, along with a few others in the region in the 1940s. He named them Fox, White Horse, Green Tree and Smith to differentiate among the colors that were produced at these mines and also to seem like he had a bigger operation than it really was for marketing purposes.
I ensure that I only use real stones, therefore, each stone and silver wrap is a unique piece of artwork, no two pieces are alike. They are all unique and handmade by me. It is made with tender, love and care. If you have a stone you want wrapped, I can do that for you. I do customized orders, if you want anything else let me know.
Silver chain not included. Shipment includes only pendant shown in pictures.
