The Naja

The Naja has its origin with the Moors in Spain. It is a good luck charm to ward off the evil eye. It was often used on the browband of Moorish Horses. It is thought that it came to Mexico via the Spanish Moors and from there was adopted by the Indians. The naja is the base pendant of many ornate squash blossom necklaces.


Howlite

Also called White Buffalo Stone, howlite is snow white to milky stone often with wide brown or black veins. Sometimes passed off as White Turquoise (Sacred Buffalo Stone) and also dyed to imitate blue or green turquoise. But real turquoise is a much denser stone and seldom has the wide veins that howlite does.
