Elegant Five Stone White Buffalo Turquoise Necklace and Earring Jewelry Set by Native American Navajo Silversmith Lyle Piaso NAN-1448. Lyle Piaso has been all about modern all silver minimal settings showcasing the beauty of the stone. Here he takes on a wonderful jagged edge with straight line stamping which is a perfect compliment to the highly polish predominantly black marble stones. Wonderful balance with teardrop Center and side stones. This wonderful Jewelry Set is a marriage between the lapidary's skill in cutting matching stones to capture the beauty, matrix and color striations of White Lightning and the talent of the silversmith to compliment those stones in the most suitable settings.
White Lightening Natural Black Marble is the invert of White Buffalo and often looks very similar to natural Black Agate which showcases predominantly black stone with white ribbon inclusion like a Lightning Strike!
Marble is one of the oldest architectural and decorative materials as seen in statues and buildings which outlasted the ancient cultures that built them. It has been valued for thousands of years for its rich palette of colors, appearance and array of finishes. White Lightning is natural Black Marble with White inclusion that polishes to a mirror finish. As with many natural stones used in jewelry making certain precautions should always be taken to protect the stone/setting. Even though Marble is commonly used for countertops and flooring, it is reactive to the acids found in vinegar, orange juice, and lemons.
