This stunning pendant crafted by Navajo silversmith Lillie Yazzie features a mesmerizing green Sonoran turquoise stone as its centerpiece, encircled by a delicate arrangement of vibrant spiny oyster cabochons. Prized for its luscious greens, blues, and gold striations, Sonoran turquoise is a unique gemstone found only in Northwestern Mexico. Adorn yourself with this pendant and let its beauty transport you to the enchanting landscapes of the Southwest.


Hailing from the Campitos mine situated near Cananea, Sonora, Mexico, Sonoran turquoise stands out due to its distinctive mining process. Unlike traditional turquoise veins, this variety is frequently discovered as nuggets within clay deposits. In operation since the 1980s, the mine yields exquisite Sonoran turquoise, characterized by vivid green hues complemented by brown matrix, occasionally accented with traces of pyrite to infuse a captivating sparkle.
