This large Navajo hand made turquoise and Wild Horse sterling silver pendant is another original design by Navajo artists, Everett & Mary Teller. The pendant features a natural Manassa turquoise stone and a large piece of Wild Horse. The stones are in perfect shape. King's Manassa turquoise is mined at Manassa in south central Colorado, but began its mining days with the ancient Pueblo people. The Manassa mine is also known as King's Manassa or the King's Mine. Wild Horse, also called Crazy Horse, is a white stone typically with a lot of deep reddish brown to dark chocolate brown matrix. Its gemological name is magnesite, and there are only two known jewelry grade deposits -- one near Globe, AZ in a national forest and another in California.
The pendant measures 2-1/4 inches long, not counting the over-sized bale. Weighs 21 grams. The bale can accommodate a necklace up to 3/8 inch in diameter. It is shown here with one of Travis Teller's signature woven sterling silver chains, which are available in different lengths, sold separately.
Brand new and in perfect condition. Gift Box and Authenticity Certificate included. Hallmarked by and purchased directly from the artists. All of their pieces are signed with their initials EMT encased with a fish symbolizing their Christian faith.
