Animal: Owl, Material: #8 Mine Turquoise
View Cart
Beloved turquoise formed underground over thousands of years within a host rock such as quartz, pyrite and even sandstone. The turquoise matrix is the term used to describe the remaining host material found in turquoise stones. The combination of stone and matrix can form amazing patterns such as seen in Brian Yatsattie's #8 Mine turquoise perched Owl. The abundant golden matrix is just as gorgeous as the areas of turquoise within this scrumptious mineral mined in Nevada. Approximately 2" tall, 1 3/8" wide and 1 1/8" deep. Beautifully sculpted wings and ever watchful eyes are from inlaid jet.
