This Old Style pendant / pin was created by Navajo artist Tim Yazzie. It features a thunderbird
design with a center bright orange spiny oyster shell.
The piece has fine stamp work as well.
The silver all has a brushed darker sheen to it.
Spiny Oyster Shell, Spondylus Brodnip Princess, is found in the Sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico
It's marked sterling.
It measures 1 1/2" tall by 1 3/8" at it's widest point.
Weight: 8.3 grams on my scale
I placed a quarter there for scale.
