For your consideration is this large and beautiful sand cast cross necklace pendant. Tested as sterling silver and probably Navajo in origin. It has a pretty turquoise stone with a nice tan brown matrix. It has a hook closure at the top. Equally impressive is the chain that was added to the cross. With a slight darker patina but still going well, it is an early hand made and hand soldered. It is marked Mexico with an old hook closure also of a different shape that the cross and has also tested as sterling silver. I think both pieces are circa 1940s possibly earlier.
The cross measures 3 inches by 2 and 1/4 inch!! The necklace measures 25 and 1/4 inches in length.
All is in excellent condition. The stone is secure and unmoving.
