This buckle features an overlaid traditional Hopi inspired water design. Genuine Turquoise and Red Coral inlay complement this already beautiful buckle. This image was hand cut with perfect precision out of shining nickel Silver and overlaid onto the nickel Silver buckle. Silver on Silver, you can't go wrong with that. Made by master buckle artist JR Jackson. This impressive buckle is 2-1/4" by 3" with a 1-1/2" wide keeper on the back.
There are many legends about Turquoise; The Pima consider it to bring good fortune and strength and believe that it helps overcome illness. The Zuni believe that blue turquoise was male and of the sky and green turquoise was female and of the earth. Pueblo Indians thought that its color was stolen from the sky. In Hopi legend the lizard who travels between the above and the below, excretes turquoise and that the stone can hold back floods. The Apache felt that turquoise on a gun or bow made it shoot straight. The Navajo consider it as good fortune to wear and believe it could appease the Wind Spirit.
