Birdseye Kingman Turquoise Belt Buckle | Leonard Nez
2 3/4" x 2"
Discover the pinnacle of artistry with this sterling silver overlay belt buckle, a masterpiece meticulously handcrafted by Navajo silversmith Leonard Nez. The focal point of this exquisite piece is a particularly beautiful Birdseye Kingman gemstone, framed by an intricate sterling silver overlay design.
Birdseye refers to a type of turquoise akin to Spiderweb turquoise, but distinct in that it features a light blue base with a complementary blue matrix rather than dark patterns. This configuration yields a unique visual effect where cross-cut stones reveal numerous pockets of lighter blue stone enveloped by darker blue matrix, resembling a bird's eye. Birdseye turquoise, a rarity, can only be found in a few mines, including the Kingman Turquoise Mine located in Arizona.
