White Buffalo Turquoise - Native American JewelryThis is a beautiful ring handmade by Native American jewelry artists with a large White Buffalo stone. While often called White Buffalo Turquoise, this is actually not genuine turquoise. When it was first discovered they miners thought it was turquoise and the name stuck. After further inspection, however, it was determined that White Buffalo is actually opalized calcite and quartz. It is still a very beautiful stone that continues to gain popularity. It is one of the most popular stones used in Native American jewelry right now. The black markings in this particular stone personally remind me of an explosion. These colors are so versatile because they can go with almost any outfit. The top of this ring measures 1 3/8" x 11/16".
