“Old Style” Sterling Silver Sandcast Belt Buckle Set With A RARE Long Teardrop Shaped Natural Bisbee Turquoise Stone. Masterfully Handmade And Designed By Navajo Artist JULIUS BURBANK.
In General, Natural or Non-Treated Turquoise Is Considered To Be Highly Desirable As It Represents The True And Unaltered Composition of The Stone. The Bisbee Turquoise Mine, Located In Bisbee, Arizona, Was Closed In 1974. The Supply Of Bisbee Turquoise Stones, Especially Those Found In Their Natural State, Has Become Quite Scarce Making This RARE And Mesmerizing Stone Highly Sought After By Many Astute Collectors.
