White Buffalo Turquoise Teardrop Ring (Size 9)
A Navajo silversmith in New Mexico created this White Buffalo Turquoise Teardrop Ring. The stone is bezel set in hand cut sterling silver and surrounded by a rope twist. The sterling silver split shank band includes the Navajo symbol for the sun on each side and is very comfortable to wear. 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, greens and yellows found in turquoise. With only a single mine in existence the value continues to increase as the resources are depleted.
