    Very nice! Looks to be an old ring.

    I have a couple of new pieces. The bracelet is made by Sam Roanhorse (1815-1983), younger brother of Ambrose Roanhorse (I have posted other pieces by AR earlier in this thread). Excited to have this - a beautifully designed and crafted cuff that employs stamping, filing and repoussť.









    Also purchased this small Navajo Arts and Crafts Guild ring:

    There is quite a bit of information online about turquoise, the mines it has come from and value, which is all over the board. Here is one discussion that attempts to show characteristic pieces from many of the more well known mines. There are other sites which attempt to differentiate grades/qualities/characteristics/value. Here is one such page. A google image search will help you appreciate the magical "zat" of individual stones which is another quality altogether.

    The Sleeping Beauty mine appears to have stopped production. Its turquoise is known for nice color and relative freedom from matrix.
    Thanks Alan.
