The most popular Stone being used in Southwest Silver Jewelry is White Buffalo. Although they call White Buffalo Turquoise, it is actually not. The name "White Buffalo Turquoise" was given to this rock from the Otteson's who are very experience in mining Turquoise and have been doing so for generations of well over 50 years. We, John and Dillon Hartman have personally examined a specimen of White Buffalo with a seam of mid-colored blue Turquoise running through the rock which is located in Tonopah, Nevada. We can easily understand why the Otteson's named this material "White Buffalo Turquoise" however they do not call it White Turquoise when selling or talking to people and usually simply call it White Buffalo.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth.
All jewelry designs are created using natural gemstones. There will be some natural variation in the jewelry. Our best is done to represent colors and markings in our photos.
