John Huntress is one of those people who has an encyclopedic memory. Because his life revolves around turquoise and the people who represent it, John can recall who, what, where, when, why, and how of it on demand and relate it all back in colorful fashion. John is also an accomplished lapidary and has a passion for beads. He hand-cut, formed, and polished this wonderfully electric choker necklace of high-grade natural beads that he mined from the Northern Lights claim located in the Carico Lake valley, in Lander County, Nevada. The man and his necklace are true treasures to the trade.
