This gorgeous large handcrafted pendant is perfect with the 20" 6 mm Desert Pearl necklace.
It created by Navajo Artist John Nelson. The White Buffalo stone
on this one is quite striking. It's a creamy white with light black to dark black. The stone
sets in a smooth bezel with fine stamp work surrounding the stone.
The silver all has a very nice satin sheen both on the pendant and Navajo pearl necklace.
It's marked sterling and signed John Nelson.
The pendant is 2" tall, plus 1/2" bail, by 1 1/2" at it's widest point
The stone is 7/8" tall by 3/4" wide
Pendant weight: 21.5 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!
