Incredibly, in these modern times, natural Royston turquoise is still available. Most of the old turquoise mines have been blasted, turned to gravel, and processed for their precious metals content. The Royston claims, albeit limited, still produce high-grade turquoise. Will Denetdale was presented with these two matched cabochons and asked to show them off to their full potential. The starburst design he came up with does just that. When the stars align and a superior turquoise and an amazingly talented silversmith are brought together, a transference of that magical energy can occur.
