The crevices, cracks, and insect holes of the mesquite can be inlaid with turquoise or just about anything you can imagine. The blue green color of the turquoise makes a beautiful accent against the red orange brown of the mesquite. We use only Gem Quality stones no artificial fillers or painted rocks. We have also used bits of gold in some pieces for an additional accent. If turquoise is not your style we can fill in the holes with whatever stone or material you choose or a black fresco epoxy for a more natural look.
