One of Lee Downey's beautiful butterfly motif buckles, this piece features a rare and diverse array of materials. The base is hand-wrought sterling silver with Carico Lake Turquoise bordering, the wings are hand-carved Tahitian mother of pearl, the central gemstone is Brazilian emerald, the wing stones are green garnet (tsavorite), and the eyes are red diamonds. Carico Lake Turquoise takes its name from the ancient, dried lake South of Battle Mountain in Nevada where it is found. While blue turquoise varieties have been found in Carico Lake, it's been made famous by the extremely rare and highly valued lime green colorations it produces, thanks to its unusual and fortuitous mineral environment.
