    This Squash Blossom necklace was bought in 1972 at the Navajo Nation Museum in Window Rock,Arizona by my mother. The stones are Persian Blue Turquoise. This kind of turquoise is extensively found in Iran's northeastern city of Neyshabar.The mines at Neyshabur are believed to be among the world's oldest known Turquoise mines.

    This necklace is sandcast and is very heavy. My mother only wore this one time.She told me it was so heavy that it almost broke her neck.It is a signed peace on back.
