"For a friend"
I bought this for a relatively new friend of mine from out of town. I have learned that she likes turquoise (who doesn't) and she once said that there is never enough purple in this world. So, this was a no brainer. She got it a couple days ago and just loves it. I will see it close up the next trip down but I will take heard word that it is beautiful because she knows real beauty. She wasn't even aware that there was such a thing as purple turquoise but she is all to familiar with the blue as her family had traveled the Southwest when she was a youngster.
