Beautiful Zuni Necklace with 79 smaller carved animals and a larger carved bear as the central focal point. This necklace is probably circa 1980's but this seller is uncertain of its exact age. The necklace is 30.5" stretched out long.

Looking at the necklace as photographed, there are 40 carved animals on the left and 39 carved animals on the right. No carved animals appear to be missing but when creating the necklace, in order for it to appear symmetrical when worn, both sides could not be strung with the same amount of carved animals.

They are hard to identify because they are stylized, but the carved animals appear to be foxes, wolves, badgers and who knows what else? They are extremely colorful and of course like always, the photos do not do the necklace 100% justice but the colors are super close to reality on my monitor. But every monitor, computer screen, phone screen will display colors differently.

This seller is untrained in the identification of semiprecious stones but this necklace appears to be created with jet, turquoise, red coral or red turquoise, black onyx, mother of pearl and obsidian. There is no damage to any of the carved animals as far as can be determined. Each carved animal is different and one of a kind. This is a very pristine piece of Zuni craftsmanship.

Contact the seller if you have any questions. The seller works from home and is able to answer correspondence very quickly in most instances. Usually within a few hours, sometimes within minutes!
