J.Forks sterling turquoise? wood necklace

Hello All,

The necklace was made by J.Forks Designs located in Boerne, Texas. Their site says their jewelry often features North American Turquoise- they have and still do offer some pretty high $ pieces since established in 1999.

The sterling, wood, stone necklace weighs 200.5g- pendant measures 2.5" x 1.5+". Brown and blue areas of the pendant and as well the blue beads between wood pasted the hot needle test.

Any opinions on the type of Turquoise are appreciated.

J.Forks responded today-

“It is Kingman Turquoise from Arizona and also just so you know the brown beads are Buffalo horn.”

Never would’ve guessed the Buffalo horn : )


Buffalo horn, interesting! Is it heavy?

Beautiful necklace. I see why you thought the beads were wooden.


That is interesting, you don’t really think of that brown with Kingman, more black.


the n.american animal is bison. african & asian are buffalo.
horn is like fingernail/hooves over bone so not solid til the tips. easy to smell the difference from wood-scrape,sand,burn
so far,all the genuine bison horn I’ve dealt with has been black

just sayin’


Yes- I would say this is buffalo not bison.
