This contemporary ring is a size 7 1/2 and was created by Navajo Artist Murphy Platero.
The White Buffalo stone is very white with gray to black and just a hint of brown. It
has Murphy's signature curvy open wire shank.
The stone is about
3/8" tall by 3/8" wide.
weight: 5.1 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.
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
