This pendant has a certain "pop" to it.  The silver appears shiny in the photo, but it was quite tarnished prior to a little cleaning.  It'll tarnish back soon enough if one prefers.  It is hallmarked with a hand-stamped "KN," with the K slightly lower than the N, so we are going to go out on a limb and say this is a Kirby Nez piece, as his hallmark has that same oddity.  This appears to be a Royston turquoise stone, with a nice sprinkling of buffed copper matrix.  The stying of the silverwork looks like Chimney Butte's work, but that hallmark says otherwise.  It has a large bale with an inside diameter slightly over a half-inch, so it will take some very large beads as well.  Not counting that bale the length of the pendant is 1 and 7/8th's-inches, while it is 1 and 5/8th's-inches across at the widest point.  Weight is 24-grams, or .84-ounces.  Nice.  Always complimentary shipping within the U.S.
