This is a pair of White Buffalo Turquoise post earrings, with a large teardrop stone. This particular pair has much more black than white.

White buffalo turquoise is a unique material found in the American Southwest. It is chemically a turquoise, but lacks the heavy metal inclusions which cause color in other turquoise varieties. White buffalo turquoise is found only in one region of Nevada, and is highly prized--it should not be confused with howlite and other lower quality stones. (See the Mineral Reference section for more information.)

Locality: Nevada, USA.

Dimensions: ----- 7/8" x 9/16" (23mm x 15mm) ----

Keywords: White buffalo turquoise is named in honor of the White Buffalo Calf Woman, a sacred woman healer central to Lakota tradition. Wholeness, spiritual connection and expansion, and connection to nature.

Care for gemstones in sterling silver jewelry: 

As with all natural stones set in silver, these jewelry pieces should be removed when taking a shower, swimming, or entering a hot springs. Water (especially hot water) can damage natural materials and even cause settings to fail. This is especially true with gemstone rings!


*Though many gems and minerals have historical and cultural associations with healing properties, these items are sold for wear in jewelry, display, study, and collector interest only.
