Good quality unakite takes a good polish and is often used to produce cabochons for jewelry or shaped into decorative ornamental gemstone carvings and various objects.

Southwestern Native American Turquoise Stamped Sterling Silver Concho Belt
Outstanding Vintage Southwestern Native American Indian turquoise stamped, repousse Sterling silver concho belt, unmarked, but most likely Navajo. Exceptional Native American motif pattern hand-stamped on heavy gauge conchos adorned with large, high gade stones, set in smooth bezels in the center of the pieces. Dark patina left untouched. There are 7 conchos plus a square concho-buckle with repousse work on the corners, and a large turquoise stone in the center surrounded by smaller stones on the sides, top, and bottom. Gorgeous stones, nicely polished, with some beautiful natural inclusions- no cracks or chips. The buckle is just over 3 3/8″ wide by 2 9/16″ tall. The swivel keeper fits the 1 1/2 best strap nicely. The belt does not have a size stamp, but it measures 25″ from hook to first hole, and 30 1/2″ to the last hole, with 4 holes in between. Each concho is about 3 1/8″ wide (across) by 2 1/4″ tall. This piece weighs a hefty 475 grams! The strap is vintage but still in good shape, with some scratches near the holes and small marks on the leather between the conchos. Note: One concho has a small silver deposit on it, and another has a 1/2 scratch, most likely unnoticeable when worn. Thank you for supporting authentic Native American art.
