    I'm no expert but, that probably reads...Hecho en Mexico which means it was made in Mexico. In my opinion, it's a very nice piece. They have very nice hand worked silver in Mexico and some very talented silversmiths there. The stones are very attractive also. What they are is beyond me. Probably turquoise but, then again, I'm no expert. Great find in my opinion.

    Mexican turquoise is high quality, and comes in both shades of blue and green. The green turquoise is created due to the presence of iron in the ground where it is formed. In Arizona, blue turquoise is formed due to the presence of copper, the white is is very rare as it is formed in the absence of heavy metals. Many fakes out there have black inclusions which is Howlite stone dyed to look like turquoise. Your piece looks good with strong iron inclusion.
