This handmade item is sand casted on the Navajo Nation. My aunt carves the spiral into a stone, pours the metal in. In order to get the silver out of the stone, the stone must be broken in half. This turns it into a one of kind piece. And in order to make another one this process must be done all over again using a different cast. Later she soders the Nevada turquoise before the metal cools. Her initials are stamped delicately on the back of each item.
The whirlwind is made out of sterling silver (925) and represents our lives and cleansing. We are the stone in the center at birth. The whirlwind is our life. It symbolizes the present and cleansing of each day, while on our paths. Out with the old, in with the new.
The southwest produces some of the highest quality of turquoise in the entire world! The bluest stones come from the Navajo Nation and are referred to as Navajo Turquoise. Arizona turquoise tends to be a bright blue, while Nevada turquoise is greener. Arizona is a copper state. Copper is what turns the turquoise the turquoise a bright blue. This Kingman Turquoise stone is a rich, stunning SKYBLUE. All our stones are hand cut on the Navajo Nation as well. There is no better Quality. Navajo Turquoise increases wealth and good fortune.
