Navajo silversmith Bennett Yazzie created this incredible, traditional Navajo pendant using sterling silver and a single White Buffalo stone. The White Buffalo piece is set at the center of top of the naja in a simple sterling silver bezel, contains large portions of black matrix running throughout, and is bordered by a sterling band stamped and cut out to form a pattern, as well as appliqued along the top with three sterling dots. White Buffalo, often called turquoise, is not technically turquoise because it lacks the presence of copper in its composition. The remainder of the naja comprises sterling silver, featuring flattened, round ends appliqued with sterling silver star patterns, which are also featured in a single, vertical row along the bail, as well as on each side of the middle of the naja. 4″ long including bail x 2 3/8″ wide.
