There is nothing at all average about this beautiful pendant! This pendant is Navajo hand crafted by B. Benally, out of genuine sterling silver, a real Turquoise stone and Corals. There are a total of THREE stones that are carefully placed in hand cut bezel settings, while being accented by mini silver beads and stunning silver petals known as squash blossoms that give the pendant an extraordinary finish.
Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of their appeal and beauty.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
