For this reason, Native Americans have chosen the eagle and its feathers as a symbol of what is highest, bravest, strongest and holiest. In the Native American culture, eagle feathers are given to another in honor, and the feathers are worn with dignity and pride.
White buffalo turquoise is a symbol of Native American culture and is one of the rarest stones on the market. The name, white buffalo, derives from the Native American belief that white buffalos are pure and rare like the white stone.
This stone lacks the defining teal green color of classic turquoise but its black spider webbing pattern is reminiscent of turquoise.
Blue turquoise grows in copper mines and therefore develops its blue-green color whereas white buffalo turquoise grows next to magnesium that bleaches the stone's pigment.
