Theses fabulous large White Buffalo Stone earrings have a great shape and
were created by Navajo Artist Sampson Jake. Very white with spotted black.
They are marked 925 and signed.
They are almost 1 1/4" tall by 3/4" wide.
Total weight: 15.2 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!
