Bronzed Mojave Turquoise is made by compressing nuggets of Mojave turquoise, and injecting it with bronze, which fills it in and makes the striking veins. It is a man-made stone, using natural turquoise. Purple bronzed turquoise is dyed; the blue parts are harder stone that does not take up the dye.
Wrapped in 14 karat gold filled wire. 14 karat gold fill wire is durable, containing about 100 times more gold than gold plate. It is considered to be heirloom quality.
