Ancient Indigenous cultures all the way down to our day have revered turquoise as a sacred mineral with healing properties perhaps due its opaque beauty and natural color resembling life-giving water and endless blue skies. Marvin Pinto's hand-fabricated sterling silver Horse pendant celebrates turquoise with a lovely golden brown matrix that especially highlights the incised tail region nicely. An eye is from jet, while a mane is etched. Including the bale fixture, Marvin's gorgeous equine pendant measures approximately 1 1/8" long and 1 1/4" wide. Signed by the artist. The attractive snake chain is not included but is available and sold separately here.
