The cuff features a slightly oblong shape for a more natural fit on the wrist. There is some wear on the stone, but this does not affect the beauty or wear of the piece. The price has been adjusted to reflect this. This listing is for the item only. This beautiful piece was made by a very talented Native American silversmith. It features hand crafted silversmith work throughout. Antique Native American jewelry is very rare to find.
This is due to these pieces being made for reservation and personal use before the tourist trade became popular. Very few pieces were made and even less survived to today. Malachite is a popular stone which has light and dark green banded areas. Many beautiful specimens of malachite contain special combinations with other minerals, such as azurite, cuprite, or chrysocolla.
