The Navajo Nation sits on 27,000 square miles within the states of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. The Navajo have a rich history and culture and have become known for creating some of the finest sterling silver and turquoise jewelry, incorporating their own traditional motifs with silversmithing. The squash blossom necklace is perhaps one the most famous Navajo styles produced, along with turquoise inlay rings. Turquoise is an important stone in Navajo culture; symbolizing happiness, good fortune, and good health. The first Navajo silversmith, Atsidi Sani, was taught around 1865 by a Mexican silversmith. Atsidi Sani, in turn, taught his four sons, who then started teaching other Navajo artisans. In the beginning, Navajo artisans created sterling silver jewelry for themselves and others in the Navajo Nation. Amber is fossilized tree resin, which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes contains animal and plant material as inclusions. Green amber, together with its inclusions, takes on a naturally green tint when the tree resin forms around fresh green leaves, or in marshy environments around decaying plant material.
