White Buffalo Stone Pendant
This fabulous large pendant was made Navajo Artist Joe Piaso Jr. The stone
on this one is quite striking. It's a creamy white with gray to black. Not as
white as the pictures show. The stone sets in a smooth bezel with lots of silver work
including twisted silver wire, stamp work and applied sterling silver beads. It comes
with a really nice 18" sterling silver link chain.
It's marked sterling and and signed.
It measures 1 3/8" tall, plus 3/8" bail, by 1 almost 1 1/4" at it's widest point
The stone is 1 1/8" tall by 7/8" wide
Pendant weight: 16.4 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?
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
