Apache Gold is the trade name for a handsome black and shiny metallic gold-like semi precious gemstone found in the United Verde Mine in Jerome, Arizona. The golden areas are pyrite. Brian Yatsattie's smoothly sculpted Apache Gold pyrite Medicine-bear
is excellent. Medicine bears are identified by their rounded backs which are reminders of the cave or den entrances where they go into torpor to build themselves up and rest. Turquoise eyes are filled with wisdom. About 3" long, 3/4" wide and 2 1/8" tall.
