    This is one of my latest finds. I don't think it is very old at all. I found a few other pieces of jewelry by the same artist on line but nothing was close to my necklace. I like the workmanship but I would like to find out about the stones used. I have seen some stones that looked close to mine. Those ones were called white buffalo but they were more white.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for looking:)

      I really love this Native American Indian jewellery, it's beautiful. I'll have a browse around and see what I come up with regarding the stones.

      Interesting link I think your stone is a Agate, it's the first on the list.

      It could also be Jasper, which is very similar in colour to your stones, but I'll let you decide.

      Super piece, freiheit!

      Thanks for your link and comment, Peasejean55. I checked out your link and agree that it could be Agate or Jasper, based on the photos.

      This is really beautiful and unusual. I would send a picture to Charles Johnes - or someone who sells his work to find out more. I love it!

      Freheit, that is a gorgeous necklace! White Buffalo Turquoise has very distinctive White Background and Black matrix. With the creamy colored beige & pinkish hues I think this piece would be Wild Horse or Crazy Horse Turquoise, which is actually a Magnesite that is mined in New Mexico. Absolutely beautiful!

      This is a stunning necklace. I had never heard of White Buffalo Turquoise, wow!

      Valentino97, I might just do that if I get my courage together. Thanks for your comment and your suggestion:)

      JoyB, Thank you so much for your information. I must admit that I don't know anything about stones at all so I really appreciate your help!
    12. JoyB JoyB, 6 years ago
      You are welcome! Crazy Horse or Wild Horse Turquoise is becoming more common in Native jewelry. I believe Native people's started using it in and around the 80's :)

      JoyB, I looked up Crazy/White Horse and I think you are correct! These stones look just like the ones of my necklace! And I went back to the store and found the matching earrings! I will post them on the weekend. Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction:)
