Value and Turquoise Type on Enormous Buckle!

Monster buckle! 4 1/4" x 3 1/4", 128grams. I am thinking Carico Lake?? Please help with turquoise type and value, not sure if I spent too much for another pretty shiny thing! :slightly_smiling_face:
I would love to know about the hallmark(knowing it is a shop) of the maker KT??


I don’t believe this is Carico Lake, characteristics are different. The cut has that classic nugget look. I think it is a piece of Turquoise Mountain.

The cut is different, but you will see a little bit of your stone in each of the three examples.

I couldn’t find anything on the mark, the word Tawa is the Sun God in Hopi. The buckle is nice, the stone is huge, $400 range.

Good find. That’s a nice looking buckle.

Thanks Jason! I will look closer at the Turquoise mountain photos.
