Santo Domingo Lone Mountain Turquoise 3 Strand Necklace - Ray Lovato (#110) Santo Domingo Lone Mountain Turquoise 3 Strand Necklace - Ray Lovato (#110)

Southwest Jewelry
35"

This magnificent three strand bead necklace was created by master lapidary artist Ray Lovato, and is cut from high-grade, natural, sky blue Lone Mountain turquoise. Lone Mountain is a hard, durable turquoise that has always been noted for holding its color. Among all “classic” Southwestern turquoise, only Lander Blue is considered more valuable. The Lone Mountain mine consists of a series of haphazard tunnels dug by miners chasing valuable veins. The mine was claimed by Lee Hand in 1920, first as the Blue Jay Mining Lode and later as Lone Mountain. In the 1960s, Lone Mountain was converted to a small open pit operations by Menliss Winfield, and to this day continues to be mined in that fashion. In 1979 Gene Waddell purchased the claim with the King family of Austin, Texas and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Gene has had several partners over the years, but the property has only been mined six of the last 28 years. Ray discovered this turquoise in a private collection and talked the owner into letting him purchase the stash. This necklace is a turquoise treasure if ever there was one.

Ray Lovato is surely one of the characters of Twin Rocks Trading Post.  As Barry and I will absolutely affirm, Ray never leaves the trading post without making an impression.  Whether it is his off-color jokes or his on-color turquoise, we are always happier having seen him.  This week he brought humor and a great strand of Royston turquoise beads to make us smile.  We feel we can never have too many sets of his beads, since we wonder how long he can continue to produce.

It has always been our quest to seek out stashes of top grade natural turquoise; whether it’s rough material or individual cabochons with unique color and character.  In this case we stumbled upon some small but powerfully potent trimmings from larger stones found and cut from the Lone Mountain turquoise mine near Tonopah, Nevada.  The trimmings were perfect for Ray Lovato to re-cut and shape into some of the most exquisite beads we have ever seen from this mine.  One never knows where a treasure might be found and what might inspire an artist like Ray.

Eugene Balone has hand hammered, cut, filed and polished this triple stacked pendant to display this amazing natural Royston turquoise cabochon. Royston turquoise comes from the Royston mining district located near Tonapah, Nevada. "Royston", originally consisted of four claims: Bunker Hill, Easter Blue, Oscar Wehrend and Royal Blue. Beauty, rarity and durability are what it takes to make a special piece of jewelry and, in this piece Eugene has done just that.
