ALTON BEDONIE NUMBER EIGHT SPIDERWEB TURQUOISE BELT BUCKLE
Number Eight turquoise was mined from the 1930s until the early 1970s with the highest production in the 1940s. Today it is only found in small private collections. The large natural cabochon in this beautiful buckle is a rarity for its size and quality. The specimen is classic glacial blue with flushes of sky blue and gold spiderweb matrix. It sits in Alton’s exceptional high hand chiseled bezel atop a starburst design. The starburst was overlaid on Alton’s innovative buckle face, cutout with marvelous precision and deeply stamped with sweeping flairs. Brightly polished half beads accent the design.
