Boulder Turquoise Sterling Silver Cuff
This stunning Boulder Turquoise Sterling Silver Cuff is designed and stamped by Navajo Tribe artist Jimmy Lee.
The most common feature of Boulder Turquoise jewelry is the beautiful vein-like structure of blue coursing through the pale white coloration on the main stone. For this reason, it's also called Ribbon Turquoise. The pattern is reminiscent of a free-flowing river or a cascading ribbon; this stone makes a lasting impression on anyone that sees it. The reason for color variation in this rare type of stone is from the small cracks in the rock. Each mine containing this beautiful stone has its own unique ecosystem with different minerals seeping into the source stone over thousands of years. This is why the stone varies from a beautiful eggshell white to a darker brown, but usually has striking lines of traditional blue throughout.
