Last fall, I purchased this box bow squash blossom necklace from an established and reputable dealer who has been selling native american collectibles in Old Town Scottsdale for over forty years. I paid pretty close to full retail so I am not here to exclaim that I found this wonderful necklace at the flea market and hit a home run. The seller was very patient with my inquiries and spent a great deal of time educating me, an interested novice. I learned that this was a 1930’s necklace hand made with turquoise from the blue gem mines of Nevada While this was all interesting, I was fascinated to learn about Landers turquoise and how only a couple of hundred pounds were ever mined. So, I am curious has anyone stumbled on some Landers turquoise where the seller was simply unaware of the value? Just curious.
