G&L LEEKITY

This hallmark belongs to Zuni artists, George and Lupeta Leekity.

They are Zuni silversmiths, lapidarists and goldsmiths. They specialize in cast work with stone settings based on the designs of Lupeta’s father, the famous Horace Iule.

Most of the crosses are made by Lupeta but she and her husband George share the same stamp. Lupeta's parents are Horace and Lupe Iule and her brother is Phillip Iule.

Lupeta began creating jewelry in 1972 and started using this hallmark in 1977.

TURQUOISE is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It is known as a master healer stone as it is believed to help speed the healing process. It is also thought that turquoise can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart.
Turquoise comes in all shades of blue, to blue-green and it is the natural variations in turquoise that make it appealing. The color of turquoise in American Indian jewelry ranges from brownish green to bright blue. Found in veins sandwiched in between layers of mother rock, turquoise can show some of the influence of the mother rock in its matrix or veining. The matrix colors range from blue to golden brown to black and sometimes with golden flecks. Many people prefer turquoise with matrix over clear stones. Read more about stones.
