Vintage Natural Green Fox Turquoise Nugget Heishi Native American Necklace

This is a listing for a vintage Native American turquoise necklace. It's new old stock, so in unused condition. It's strung with natural turquoise nuggets from the Fox mine.

Some of the nuggets were left in a natural ovoid shape and some were squared off across the bottom. None of the beads are broken and they all took a strong polish.

This mine produces many shades of blue and green turquoise, both in solid colors as well as blended. The nuggets in this piece are a rich medium dark green with the characteristic fox turquoise scattered light brown matrix. All the turquoise is a rich saturated green.

The artist chose hand ground natural fox turquoise heishi beads to use as spacers. The necklace finishes with several inches of these beautiful heishi beads which have a warm soft polish. A sterling bench made bead, cones and hook and eye clasp finish the piece. It's strung on beading fiber, giving the necklace a fluid drape. The turquoise heishi would have been ground by a Santo Domingo artist and the 2 silver bench made accent beads would have been Navajo made and either tribe could have strung these beads.

I was happy to find 2 of these wonderful vintage necklaces and will be listing both. This is a nice piece for the person who does not want large heavy beads.

The nuggets average in size from approximately 8mm to 12mm in length. The heishi spacers are about 5 to 6mm across and the 2 and 7/8th inches of heishi that finish the necklace on each side measure 4mm across. The total length of the necklace is 30 inches and it weighs a very respectable 55 grams.
