This is a RARE find! Featuring amazing Castle Dome turquoise, this squash blossom measures 28" long, with the naja measuring an additional 4". Hand made Navajo pearl beads, strung on string. No stamping or artists marks. Thought to be from the 1940s or 50s. 

Although this piece is very old, it is in excellent shape. All of the turquoise are natural stones with no visible damage. 

The Castle Dome turquoise mine is located about 30 miles from the Sleeping Beauty mine, near Globe, Arizona. The Castle Dome mine has not been in operation since the early 1970s. Castle Dome is known for its incredible bright blue color. Castle Dome is distinguished from Sleeping Beauty by its more vibrant blue and the presence of more matrix. The matrix in Castle Dome turquoise is light brown to gold in color. This stone is unique because of the honey brown crust that is present before it is cut. The natural stone is extremely rare and hard.
