$8,300.00 SOLD 

Offered here is an extremely rare 100% original Anasazi bracelet which is made from New Mexico fluorite strung on cotton cord. This piece was discovered in the fall of 1982 by Chris Robinson (General Hospital fame) and two of his friends when they were excavating a ruin on a private ranch just south of Reserve New Mexico. The bracelet was found inside a small plain ware jar which accounts for the excellent state of preservation. There are four fluorite pieces carved in the shape of bear claws and three cylindrical beads threaded on a cord of wrapped cotton. The New Mexico fluorite material has been confirmed by Wayne Thompson who is a well known mineral expert.

Anasazi and Hohokam carved jewelry pieces are highly coveted by institutions and collectors alike … they are virtually never encountered in such a state of preservation. Needless to say this is one of the most important surviving items of prehistoric Native American jewelry extant.

The photos are true to the real colors of the piece, two of the claws have chips which are insignificant.

SOLD 

Completely original jewelry items from the Anasazi period are virtually never seen. This example is composed of small jet beads and small tubes of shell strung on a cotton cord. At the end are two triangular pieces of carved shell each with two small inlaid pieces of turquoise (one of four missing). The previous owner purchased this piece over 20 years ago. Length is a little over 11.5 inches….an opportunity for the collector that demands only the very best.
