Once again, it is NOT a horseshoe. The naja has a lot of history and tradition behind it. Too much to go into here. This naja is made from thick-gauge Sterling that appears to be sand-casted first, then hand-stamped as well. It has a nice rectangular chunk of purple spiney oyster shell set in a detailed bezel. Also, the bale is hand-stamped and formed with scalloped edges. The naja and bale are done in an "old-style" patina. Height of the naja, NOT including the large three-quarter-inch bale, is 2 and 7/8th's-inches; width is 2.5-inches. Included is a 22-inch, 5mm burnished Sterling bead chain popularly (larger than the one shown) known as "Navajo pearls." Weight of the naja and chain is about 2.30-ounces. The naja is hallmarked.
