Notice the matrix in the earrings--so neat! White buffalo turquoise forms where there are no heavy metals present to color it blue (copper) or green (iron), which turns out to be very rare. To date, no other vein of gem quality white turquoise has been found outside of this mine in Dry Creek , north of Austin, Nevada, found in 1993. When this current vein runs out, it will be the last of it.
Because White Turquoise is as rare as a white buffalo, the Indians call it White Buffalo Turquoise, The White Turquoise is itself considered sacred and powerful. The earrings are quite elegant for pierced ears. This is an authentic Native American Indian handmade item.
The metal is sterling silver and the stones (if any) are natural (unless described differently). My only supplier (since 2004) has been a 4.Generation family business in Gallup, NM.
