This vintage Navajo Indian handcrafted sterling silver Navajo keychain is adorned with an Authentic Turquoise stones.
Turquoise is an opaque mineral that is rare and valuable - prized as a gemstone and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue.

The Navajos are a Native American people of the Southwestern United States, and are the second-largest federally recognized tribe in the U.S, with the largest reservation in the country. The reservation straddles the Four Corners region and covers more than 27,000 square miles of land in Arizona, Utah and New Mexico.

In the mid to late nineteenth century, the Navajos had learned silversmithing from the Spanish and pueblos. After learning how to silversmith, the Navajos began to combine silver with the Navajo turquoise. The Navajo turquoise jewelry was only used for ceremonies and religious rituals before tourists took interest into the Navajo art.

Black, white, blue, and green were the colors within the turquoise stone which represent the colors of the natural world. The symbol called “Naja” appeared often in tradition Navajo jewelry. The symbol Naja was obtained from the Mexican culture, which represents good fortune.
