Could this bracelet possibly be Bisbee

I bought this bracelet many years ago when I had just started learning about turquoise. Didn’t know anything about it; just knew I should buy it. Someone mentioned to me several years ago that it looked like Bisbee Lavender Pit. The blue is that intense Bisbee color. It is a large piece of turquoise as you can see in the pictures.
Would really like to know if it is Bisbee and an appropriate value. It is a bracelet that is very dear to me and I’d like to know more about it. Thanks for any and all help.

This is classic Bisbee. Good find!! Can you give us an idea of how large the stone is?

Stone is 2 3/4” by 1 1/4”. Overall length 3 3/8”. Thanks! The heart vein was the ultimate selling point.

I weighed a stone with a similar size and it was 78 carats, but it all depends on the thickness of the stone and the backing. Your stone is somewhere between a $600 - $1000 rock I am guessing. However, this is one isn’t just about the stone. It has the nice patina, big and a good look. I would put the piece around $2200 - $2500. Thanks for sharing.


Your appraisal has just moved me to tears. I bought it as a remembrance piece not long before my cousin (aka sister/best friend) lost her battle with cancer. I sure she would be dancing a jig! Now I will go move it into the safe.
Once again, thank you for sharing your knowledge.
