This fabulous bracelet was created by Navajo Artist Murphy Platero.
The large White Buffalo Stone is a creamy white with black. It's not
quite as white as the pictures show. I love his signature open curvy wire cuff.
It's marked sterling and signed MP
It can be carefully adjusted to fit
It has an inside of about 5 1/2" plus a gap 1 1/8"
The stone 1 1/8" tall by 3/4" wide
The wire shank tapers down to just over 1/2" at the ends.
Weight: 31.4 grams on my scale
I placed a quarter there for scale.
White Buffalo Stone, also known as Sacred Buffalo Stone, is white with black
and brown inclusions. It's sometimes called "white turquoise" but it is not turquoise
and from what I gather it's comes from only one mine in Nevada, which is owned by the Otteson family.
It's a great looking stone and this goes with everything, what's not like about black and white?
