Emerald Mountain turquoise is mined in Nevada, prized for its rare and verdant natural color. Christopher Sandoval made beautiful use of this precious variety in carving a gentle Turtle
(or tortoise), with eyes from blue turquoise. Smoothly furrowed lines enhance an already gorgeous carapace, while a lovely offering bundle with melon shell, turquoise, purple spiny oyster shell and a segment of red branch coral is quite colorful. About 2 3/4" long, 2" wide and 1" tall.
