These lovely small White Buffalo Stone earrings were made by Navajo Artist Burt Fransisco.
The stones are creamy white - not as white as the pictures show
They are marked 925 and signed.
They are 5/8" tall by 1/2" wide.
Total weight: 5.8 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 is 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!
