John King Navajo White Buffalo Teardrop Earrings
These White Buffalo teardrop earrings, created by Navajo artist John King, have striking splashes in black and white. A clean bezel setting and surrounded with a rope twist. 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. With only a single mine in existence the value continues to increase as the resources are depleted. Handmade in New Mexico.
