Have you seen a condor? I got to see a few when I was at the Grand Canyon years ago, but WOW, those birds are so big and incredible to watch. These stone remind me of the Canyon and so I felt it safe to add some birds of prey. The story of the stones... Royston Ribbon turquoise is from the Boulder mine and was discovered in the 1970s by a herder who came upon a vein of turquoise in the hills. The production of this turquoise is small because of the remote location of the mine, which makes it valuable for its rarity as well as its beauty. These are made for the river spirit and built to last. Lightweight as always.
