🍀🍀🍀🍀Damele Turquoise/Variscite Cabochon Natural High Grade High Domed🍀🍀🍀🍀
🍀🍀🍀🍀This all natural, high grade, high domed Damele Mine Turquoise/Variscite cabochon was backed with Devcon and cut myself to insure the best quality. The rough material was purchased from the Cotner Estate. I use the thinnest amount of Devcon, only enough to get the job done properly. This olive-green Damele cab has a beautiful brown spiderwebbing which runs right through the face of the stone. I'm a silversmith myself so all of my cabs are cut with the intention of being set in jewelry. Therefore only the shortest bezel wire is required to hold any of my cabs in place unless otherwise stated.🍀🍀🍀🍀
🍀🍀Damele Mine is located thirty miles northeast of Austin, Nevada next to the Godber-Burnham Mine on the Dry Creek Ranch owned by the Damele family where they raise their own horses that carry the Damele name. The Damele Mine was originally discovered by Benny Damele around 1973. Not long after that Clyde Wright started working the claim, he did this for 18 years. In 1990 Tony Cotner bought the claim from Benny Damele and worked it until his passing in March of 2016. Tony was the one who made the Damele Mine so famous. The mine's productivity is now in question.The Damele Mine produced high grade Turquoise and Variscite. The Turquoise is usually very hard and can be a yellow-green color due to iron or environmental conditions. Colors from this mine can range from lime green, bright Chartreuse, yellow, black, white, orange and brown, a creamy carmel color or in rare cases a range of blues.🍀🍀
