This vintage Navajo necklace looks great on! This 28 necklace has large chunks of turquoise. I don't know the mine for this turquoise.
I did an acetone test on several stones and nothing came off but a little dirt. This is a hefty piece, weighing 250 grams!

We attempt to depict any defects in the description. However, the pictures are to be considered the majority of the description.I identify stones to the best of my ability. Turquoise may or may not be treated. If I know it is block turquoise, coral, or opal, I will state so. I can only base it on why my Dad taught me when he repaired jewelry. I test stones using the hot needle test and if silver isn't marked sterling or 925, I will test using magnet and ice.
