Here's something unique from Navajo silversmiths Everett & Mary Teller. The bracelet features a big oval Shadowkite stone set on a twisted hammered shank. What is Shadowkite? It's a part of the Chrysocolla family: four different minerals actually, Chrysocolla being the main component, Cuprite, Malachite and Azurite. Shadowkite is found in the Table Mountain range of South Africa. Sourced from mines near Cape Town, this unique combination of colors isn’t found anywhere else. Shadowkite gets its captivating blue and green coloration from the presence of copper. Generally speaking, gems that are found near copper (like turquoise too) will be green, blue, or any color in between. The stone is all natural and untreated. It's a stone you don't see everyday. There are no cracks in the stone, only brighter and lighter lines of color.
The five silver support bracelet frame has been made from twisted, hammered silver, creating a marvelous effect.
The bracelet measures 2-1/4 inch wide at the front and the inside end-to-end measurement is 5-1/2 inch plus there is an adjustable 1 inch gap. It weighs 97 grams. That's over three ounces! Everett & Mary never fail to impress me with their choice of high quality stones and contemporary designs.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift Box and Certificate of Authenticity included. Hallmarked by and purchased directly from the artists.
