Larry Loretto Vintage Native American Zuni Cripple Creek Turquoise Sterling Silver Bracelet
The Cripple Creek turquoise mine, located in Teller County, Colorado, is a gemstone source that has gained recognition for its distinctive turquoise varieties. While not as prolific as some of the more famous turquoise mines in the American Southwest, Cripple Creek turquoise has carved its niche in the market for its unique qualities. It is known for its beautiful light to medium blue hues with characteristic brown and black matrix patterns, giving it a charming, earthy appeal. This mine has been producing turquoise intermittently since the early 20th century, and its stones have been used by Native American artisans and jewelry makers to create exquisite pieces. Cripple Creek turquoise, with its rustic charm and regional significance, has garnered a dedicated following among collectors and those who appreciate the individuality of its stones. The width of the bracelet measures around 1/2". Signed by Zuni artist, Larry Loretto. Sterling silver, marked. The inside end to end measures around 5-7/8" with an additional 1-1/4" gap. Sturdy 44 grams.
