ABOUT THE STONES:
FOX TURQUOISE: The Old Fox mine is located in Lander County near Cresent Valley, Nevada. It was first mined in prehistoric times by the indigenous people, who used the large nuggets in adornments and ceremonies. In the 1940's, Dowell Ward purchased and developed the old Cortez turquoise claims and since, it has has been one of the largest producing mines in Nevada. Fox turquoise is quite stable and runs from shades of green to an aqua blue color.
A NOTE ON WEAR: I have chosen high quality materials that make a piece of jewelry to last a lifetime. While my pieces are made for those with adventurous spirit, take care while wearing my pieces as natural stones can be delicate. To prolong the life of your piece, I suggest you remove it while swimming, hiking, rock climbing, cliff jumping, skydiving or whatever other crazy and rigorous adventure you find yourself on!
