Not even sure if this it Native. Any thoughts? Really would like to ID the Turquoise. It has some very dark blues in it. Any thoughts?
The buckle looks sandcast to me, don’t you think?? Definitely not what you would call a “traditional style” cast though! Sorry I am of no help on the turquoise! The stone is very pretty though.
I agree it is sand cast. Looks more Hippie than Native. Have to wait and see about the Turquoise. It has alot of deep blue at the top of the stone. Thanks for commenting!
Is the stone partially translucent at the top?
no not really, just a bit glossy from the light (in the photo)
I don’t know if I would call this sandcast. I think those are pieces of melted silver that have been soldered together. I can’t imagine this design being carved into a stone. No idea with the stone, that is going to be difficult to identify.
