A sky blue with a golden matrix make this natural Arizona turquoise beautiful. I’ve set this natural colored turquoise in a textured silver bezel on my ornate western ring band, then I antiqued it so the patterns pop out. I purchased this turquoise directly from the miners in Arizona on a very hot summer day and I was attracted immediately to its pretty color. To make the setting interesting I hammered a pattern into the silver before bending it around the stone so it becomes a small sculpture.
