One Of The Best Native American Navajo Damale Turquoise Sterling Silver Bracelet
One of the best Damale pieces we have EVER collected...This is an impressive vintage Navajo large three stone silver bracelet. This superior bracelet contains three phenomenal oval shaped vibrant Damale turquoise stones. The amazing green colored stones are so beautiful and consist of stunning matrix. The stones appear to be from the fascinating Damale turquoise mine. Surrounding the stones are amazing silver ropes with accenting shells. This bracelet contains a thick and sturdy five silver shank cuff with two of the shanks being coiled. Damale turquoise has an interesting history. This American turquoise is also spelled Damaile or Damele. The name comes from the Damele family who owned the mine.
The Damele family raise unique horses at the Dry Creek Ranch outside of Austin, Nevada. In 1973 Benny Damele discovered the Damele mine in this area. It is on the flats before the foothills of a scenic mountain range.
This area of east central Nevada has several other well known mines besides the Damale. These include the Carico Lake, Dry Creek and Godmer mines. The Damale mine began to be mined when Clyde Wright bought it. He mined it for 18 years before selling to Tony Cotner, under whom the Damale really began to be recognized.
The center stone measures around 1-1/4" x 7/8". The width of the bracelet measures around 1-1/4". Signed by Navajo artist, Derrick Gordon. Sterling silver, marked. The inside end to end measures around 5-1/2" with an additional 3/4" gap. Sturdy 63 grams.
