These White Buffalo stone sterling silver earrings are  handmade by Navajo artist Kathy Secatero. They have striking splashes of black and white running through the stone. A simple smooth bezel keeps the attention on this rare stone and gives the handmade earrings a contemporary look. The borders around the stones are oxidized for contrast. 

White Buffalo Stone, commonly called White Buffalo Turquoise, is from a single mine near Tonopah, Nevada. It is known for its distinct beauty and purity. While similar to turquoise in its structure and formation, its stunning white and black color is due to the lack of heavy metals like copper, iron, and zinc, which are responsible for the characteristic blues and greens found in turquoise. With only a single mine in existence, the value continues to increase as the resources are depleted.
