Navajo Sterling "bar" necklace made from compressing spiney oyster, turquoise and bronze.

$120.00

Description

We carry this "stone" in earrings, pendants, rings and two sizes of bar necklaces.  We currently have a few dozen of these.  Frankly, they sort of look alike, but we'll post a couple more of them just for grins.  The reason these 18-inch (polished Sterling chain), 1.5-inch wide and 5/8th's-inch tall bar necklaces haven't been posted on this site prior is because they sell too quick to photo and post them.  The Navajo buy this material in a compressed "brick" about the size of a house brick.  One of the well-known turquoise mines apparently takes pieces of turquoise, spiney oyster shell and bronze and puts the mixture into a machine which then applies huge amounts of pressure that turns these elements into a hardened brick.  We call it what the mine owners call it—turquoise, spiney and bronze mix—and not a coffee flavor.  Hallmarked "DS," which is Donovan Skeets.  Always free priority shipping.
