Beautiful Morenci turquoise stone rests in a bezel setting. A ribbon twist design surrounds the stone. Split shoulders taper into the smooth, polished band for secure wear. Damage : Age appropriate wear. Tarnish on the sterling silver gives the piece an antique quality we believe is rather lovely. The price has been reduced to reflect this. This listing is for the item only. This beautiful piece was made by a very talented Native American silversmith. It features handcrafted silversmith work throughout. Antique Native American jewelry is very rare to find. This is due to these pieces being made for reservation and personal use before the tourist trade became popular. Very few pieces were made and even less survived to today. The Navajo Nation sits on 27,000 square miles within the states of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. The Navajo have a rich history and culture and have become known for creating some of the finest sterling silver and turquoise jewelry, incorporating their own traditional motifs with silversmithing. The squash blossom necklace is perhaps one the most famous Navajo styles produced, along with turquoise inlay rings. Turquoise is an important stone in Navajo culture; symbolizing happiness, good fortune, and good health. The first Navajo silversmith, Atsidi Sani, was taught around 1865 by a Mexican silversmith. Atsidi Sani, in turn, taught his four sons, who then started teaching other Navajo artisans. In the beginning, Navajo artisans created sterling silver jewelry for themselves and others in the Navajo Nation. The concept of Pawn, Old Pawn, and Dead Pawn Native American Jewelry came to be in the 1800s. When a loan wasn’t repaid, the item became known as either “Old Pawn” or Dead Pawn. Turquoise is found all over the world and has been a popular semi-precious stone used in jewelry and art for thousands of years by many different cultures; from prehistoric times to the present. Turquoise comes in many beautiful color variations; from the popular bright solid sky-blue hues to dark blue hues with dark spiderwebbing throughout, as well as aqua, teal, and many green varieties, and even some rare white with dark spiderwebbing. Known throughout the world for its gorgeous true-blue hues mixed with a silvery iron pyrite matrix; it also came with a rare golden pyrite matrix. Also found were aqua blue green turquoise stones with birdseye webbing, which are areas of color circled with matrix resembling a bird’s eye, and water webbing matrix. This mine has been closed for several years, making Morenci Turquoise rare and highly coveted by collectors. This item is in the category “Jewelry & Watches\Ethnic, Regional & Tribal\Rings”. The seller is “abeautifultimeco” and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.

Morenci Turquoise Sterling Silver Belt Buckle Navajo Ray Morton Whirling Winds
Morenci Natural Turquoise Silver Belt Buckle by Navajo Artist Ray Morton of Whirling Winds shop Vintage 1970s. Nizhóní means Beautiful in Navajo. The buckle was made in the 1970s, Im thinking mid to late 70s when Ray did this type of detailed meticulous craftsmanship that was certainly very lovingly created and was definitely time consuming. The stunning turquoise cabochon was probably cut in the 1970s although it could have been cut earlier. The loop on the back of the buckle is a little over 2-1/4 inches when measured inside it, Id suggest a belt no wider than 2-1/4 inches so you have some room to pull it and so it doesnt scrape the sides on the loop. The real value in this piece besides the amazing design and craftsmanship and skill, along with a true labor of love for his work by Navajo Artist Ray Morton is the turquoise, this high end grade of turquoise is worth more per carat or gram than most pieces of jewelry youll see for sale. This amazing and beautiful belt buckle has a gorgeous silver patina, it has been wrapped in many layers of bubble wrap and packed safely away in a drawer for many years. The silver may look dull to some, but I decided to not clean it since some collectors like a silver tarnish patina and if you bought it you can always clean it to satisfy your own desire for the level of patina you want to remove from a little to sparkling shining like new sterling silver. Im presenting this one of a kind unique and rare high-grade, high-end Huge Morenci Turquoise cabochon from the closed Morenci turquoise mine in Arizona which is hand crafted into a very cool and stunning belt buckle like no other youll ever find. My family has been collecting Native American art and jewelry since the 1950s when they drove their trailers and cars each winter to Arizona and New Mexico and then on summer vacations. We have a long history with Fine quality and unique Native American jewelry and art. First and 4th photos were taken in natural sunlight, all others in indoor lighting. This store Searchingforfun Collectibles is what our family has loved and collected for decades and Im always searching for fun things to collect and sell on here. Please notice that the lights and flash have created white spots in some photos and this is Not white spots or areas in the turquoise, but just in the photos. Approximately 7 to 7-1/8 inches in length at the longest measurement of this free-form cabochon and approximately 4-4/8 inches wide at the most, please see photo with tape measurer pressed down on back of buckle. Thank you for looking. Most likely this was specially made for an important person since you can tell by the detail of the work and that this high-end high-grade HugeTurquoise Stone is very rare and expensive. You simply dont find quality turquoise anymore of this caliber and size, these types of beautiful cabochons are very difficult if not impossible to find today. Well designed and made with intricate detailing and fine craftsmanship. I guarantee this to be a genuine Native American artist made piece. Gorgeous Beautiful One of a kind. Items are not included such as other nearby jewelry in the photos, they are not included and coins and the dollar bill are only to show size, they are not included. Stamped with Navajo Artist RM for Ray Morton and WW flipped over underneath RM for the Whirling Winds shop which Ray was associated with when he made this amazing belt buckle. Tests as Sterling silver, turns red with the test solution as. 925 Sterling does, but cant see or find a stamp for Sterling unless it was along an edge that was covered after being lovingly and intricately hand made, possibly it was folded over along an edge. As with older vintage pieces there are fine scratches on the silver and turquoise that dont take away from the beauty of this fine piece of jewelry. This large rare cabochon has a slight wave look from the side as it isnt a completely flat stone and the stone was cut to show these slight wave-like indentations which enhances its uniqueness and beauty. Please see All photos which are all part of the full description. This clearly is natural turquoise and not man made plastic and not stabilized. Ive had this stored away in my collection for nearly 15 years, it is time for it to have a new home and a loving owner to wear it proudly. Please use the photos as description details also as they show better than words can describe how gorgeous this 22.3 ounce belt buckle is. I always very carefully wrap all items with lots of bubble wrap as if it was Grandmas fine China and pack everything to make sure its secure in a cardboard box with no room to slide around to make sure it arrives safely to you. Please read the full description as Ive included a great deal of information on this belt buckle and the photos give good detail also. There are fine scratches on the turquoise from where the previous owner was wearing it I was told, but they dont distract from its beauty and this amazing natural turquoise color and this spider web pattern. There is a sort of scuff mark on one end where the turquoise was cut and buffed and polished like the rest of the piece, but you can see very close up if you look for it. I never noticed it while wearing it and no one did since its an eye-popping, breathtaking WOW!!!! Piece of fine high quality jewelry that makes peoples mouths fall open and gasp at its beauty. You can have an expert belt maker most likely in your town that may make or fix shoes and other leather products create a belt in your size that will best fit you and your style if you dont already have a belt this will fit on. If the postal carrier misses you at your home they will take it to the Post Office and you can sign for it and pick it up there. This is to protect both you and me from thieves or fraud especially during Christmas season.

Vintage Navajo RARE Morenci Turquoise/Sterling Squash Blossom Necklace 179 grams
Morenci Turquoise Squash Blossom Necklace Handcrafted Navajo Treasure. Authentic and Absolutely Beautiful. Total of 17 Morenci Turquoise Cabochons in ornate bezel settings – note the twisted rope handwork and eyelash imprinting on the settings. Crescent Naja has 7 Stunning Cabochons set in Ornate Sterling Bezels – the cabs are wonderfully balanced and complementary. Large Turquoise stones – some 1 in X 1 in and others 1 in X. These are high grade cabs that have been backed for durability. The black portions under the stone (visible in Naja photo) are not some sort of filler. These portions are evidence of a backing epoxy, which is regularly used for higher grade Turquoise, since it is normally found in smaller seams within its host stone. 10 Sterling Squash Blossoms set in double rows of handcrafted sterling beads. Top six inches are single-strand sterling beads. Sides of beaded strand each have 5 Morenci Turquoise cabochons in sterling bezels. This gem was recently discovered in a retired jewelers closet when moving. This unique turquoise is so special because it can no longer be mined. Color of Turquoise is high to light blue in color with an unusual matrix of black pyrite and QUARTZ, which is rare. You can see portions in matrix which look like high polished silver, which is a hallmark of Morenci. These stones are a. Beautiful, beautiful blue that is very hard to capture in photos. Some of the stones actually seem to have a Blinding Glow from within. This is one of the most unique Native American pieces that I have ever laid eyes on… Nothing has been touched or cleaned! It is lovely as is…. One bead has small ding. Because it was in storage for so many years and not worn, the silver doesnt have the patina of those that were worn frequently and exposed. But this does not mean it was polished. No stone damage and any inclusions are natural… Clasp has hook and is well enforced for weight. Weight is 179 g.
