A three strand Zuni fetish necklace with foxes carved in turquoise on a brown Heishi shell beads string with a main pendant representing an eagle, the incarnation of divine power.
In a time when the Zuni tribe lived from agriculture and hunting, the hunters would always bring these amulets with them. The fetishes assure benevolence of the soul. Each animal represents its spirit, its own inner force and protects its owner.
Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of its appeal and beauty.
