Paula says - "In my opinion, this pendant shows all the design characteristics and workmanship of being Navajo made. But because we are unable to attribute the hallmark to a specific artist we can't legally sell it as Native American made - read more."

Nevada Green Turquoise

Many Turquoise mines throughout Nevada produce beautiful shades of green turquoise ranging from lime green to a rich dark green. Some of the more famous mines are the Royston, Blue Gem, Orvil Jack, Carico Lake, Battle Mountain, Pilot Mountain, and the Fox mine. Nevada Green Turquoise has been popular among jewelry collectors for generations, Today it has become scarce due to a slow down in Nevada turquoise mining caused by government restrictions and rising costs of mining.

NOTE: Items in our Vintage Shop are either USED or NEW. They might come from inheritances, estate sales, private collections, and store liquidations. Many items are brand new (NOS, New Old Stock) and in perfect condition while others may show tarnish, scratches and other signs of use. Major issues will be described in detail and shown in photos. Vintage Shop items are sold as described and are not returnable.
Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
