Description

Turquoise is not only a stone for finding wholeness and truth; it is also an aid in the communication and manifestation of those qualities.  Turquoise is a stone of self forgiveness, self acceptance and the release of useless regrets. Mojave Turquoise is a trade name for a stabilized, dyed turquoise that comes from the Kingman Turquoise Mine in Arizona. There are three different colors of turquoise created by this company; they are blue, green and purple.

Sterling silver, also known as 925 sterling silver, is a metal alloy used in jewelry. Traditionally, it is 92.5% silver (Ag), and 7.5% copper (Cu). Occasionally, other metals account for 7.5%, but the 925 hallmark will always indicate 92.5% silver purity.

Sterling silver is an alloy, or combination of metal types. Unlike pure silver, which contains 99.9% elemental silver (Ag), sterling silver (925) contains one or more additional metals that add strength to the otherwise delicate material. Pure silver is naturally very soft, and would easily bend or break if used for jewelry without being blended with a stronger metal.
