Turquoise is a natural stone that comes in many hues, and is traditionally found in southwestern jewelry and adornments. There are many varieties of turquoise, including the remarkable Bisbee turquoise that was found in Bisbee, Arizona.
Varying shades of blue are surrounded by a chocolate matrix, and often, copper veining that accents the stone’s color. Arizona’s Lavender Pit copper mine yielded a fine supply of this special Bisbee turquoise, which was highly sought after for its beauty. While this mine is now closed, Bisbee turquoise is still prized by collectors and artisans.
True to the natural stone that inspired her decoration, Bisbee has a unique blue/green speckled body color that mimics the gorgeous natural hues of turquoise. Her coat is accented by metallic copper veining that is the hallmark of Bisbee turquoise. Stunning from every angle, Breyer has indeed unearthed a rare beauty to be treasured!
