Morenci Turquoise Lovers 80 carats total weight!
For your consideration, a heavy old Navajo belt buckle with stunning examples of Morenci Turquoise from Arizona. All stones chosen represent excellenttextures, colors, and finish. From the mother of pearl on the top, to over 80 carats of Morenci Turquoise in the 3 Turquoise settings. The 2 side Morenci Turquoise stones measure 1 1/2" long! Width at the widest is close to 1 inch. The middle stone is 3/4" by5/8". The Fire Coral measures 1 1/2 inch long, and the Mother of Pearl Cabochon is 3/4" by 1/2".
The highly sought after Morenci shows what we expect. A great blue color with rich black matrix, inclusions, and pyrite running through the stone and appearing at the surface, looking like small pieces of silver.
The buckle is oval, with hand filing details and foliate applique work. Measurements are 4 inches wide, 2 3/4" tall and will fit a 1 1/2" belt. The buckle weighs a whopping 103.2 grams of Sterling Silver, which while not marked (and common for this period) was Nitric tested and passed. The Makers Mark is RF. We estimate the vintage to be 60's.
