HIGH GRADE two stone MORENCI Turquoise BRACELET with Quartz rare vintage Navajo
Prophetic words from Don Hoel (page 97, Skystone and Silver): With the good stones, who looks at the silver as much as the stones? An iron nail (4 to 5 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, depending on the book and website you are reading) glides through the turquoise surface (the actual blue sections) WITHOUT scratching the BLUE sections. Also, steel is absolutely not iron. Normal steel (5 to 6 on the Mohs scale, depending on the book and website you are reading) is harder than iron. The broken off tip of the expensive pair of stainless steel scissors (5.5 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale but more than likely a 6.5) will scratch the BLUE parts of these cabs (since the broken off tip does not have the zinc coating; zinc is usually used as the coating material, and its hardness is the same as iron, at least from what we have read). The tips of the broken scissors are the raw stainless steel. Raw, sharp, stainless steel is harder than zinc — understand? Again, the iron nail (with the same hardness as zinc, at least from what we have read) simply glided through. Picture #7 equals the Morenci bracelet versus the expensive Morenci w/ Quartz squash (part of a wonderful set). And no, this two-stone Morenci bracelet is not part of the set since the set has its own amazing bracelet. Picture #8 is the back of the Morenci w/ Quartz squash with the original store’s “trader code” sticker. Picture #4 also shows the “legal and binding” receipt, and this is when being a Harvard dude gets his education’s worth. Picture #9 shows aspects of the fascinating! Morenci w/ Quartz set… Picture #3 equals Morenci w/ Quartz versus Red Mountain turquoise. Picture #2 equals Morenci w/ Quartz versus Best Foods Light Mayonnaise’s blue. No unwanted surprises here. If a bracelet does not have info about the artist, etceteras, then simply enjoy the masterpiece when it adorns your person. If, however, you find extra tidbits (outside of the receipt) due to our extensive, diligent research, then consider yourself lucky. Many store owners back in the day were not as knowledgeable compared to our “Googled” (with social media in the mix) generation… BUT, do your own sleuthing, in the end. If you have a bracelet that fits, compare our measurements by following the steps of our detailed method… If all else fails, ask a question; never assume. More Info: Since most people’s arms taper down… One side’s approx. “Inner diameter” is 56 mm, while the opposite side’s approx. “Inner diameter” is 53.5 mm. The opening-gap’s “inner measurement” is approx. The relative “inner circumference” of the bracelet is, not including the gap , approximately 131 mm, (which is the approximate measurement of the dental floss). See Pictures #11 and #12. Digital Weight: 4.9 oz As you can see, this amazing Morenci bracelet is not overly ornate to detract your attention from the beauty and magic of the gemstones. The bracelet is definitely wearable, not a throwaway, or the type where the gemstones will be salvaged while the the rest will go back to the purifying fire. At any rate, it is rare to find a beautiful Morenci with Quartz nowadays since the good ones are in collectors’ hands. Morenci with Quartz is not a mystery. According to Durangosilver regarding their Morenci gemstone with Quartz: Quatz in Turquoise is also very rare. Picture #1 shows the closest to its true turquoise hue, but nothing is ever close enough when it comes to digital photography since it is a heightened reality, to begin with. We have never used this bracelet as you can see from the leftover tag. Also, it has no trader code. But please, do not expect the turquoise gemstones to be like freshly made glass without matrix, inclusions, fissures, veins, and nature’s beautiful flaws. Actually, the cost may even be higher if the size of the box is huge and if you open the package… Since this example is strictly about refusing a package being handed to you by the UPS carrier. BTW, this example is about a small box just to send out a wristwatch. Actual color and shape may vary from pictures due to glare, digital camera phenomenon, lighting, your computer settings, and other factors. Thank you for stopping by.
