Considered to be one of the most valuable variations of turquoise, a unique Spiderweb Kingman gemstone graces the center of this intriguing pendant crafted by Navajo silversmith Lillie Yazzie. Radiating lime green gaspeite and purple spiny oyster shell stones create depth and truly set this pendant apart from most traditional Southwestern jewelry motifs.

 

With a history spanning over a millennium, the Kingman Turquoise Mine is one of America's earliest and most prolific sources of turquoise. Discovered by ancient indigenous peoples over 1000 years ago, Kingman turquoise boasts an enchanting sky-blue hue, offering a spectrum of blue variations. The mine’s legacy is intertwined with the history of the American Southwest, as has served as the largest turquoise supplier in the jewelry trade since the late nineteenth century.
