Is this a Navajo Piece?


#1

Hi, I won this necklace in an online auction. It also has sterling stamped on the back (actually it says terlin because the s and the g are worn off), and I was told the stone is malachite. The pendant appears to be handmade. The chain is stamped “925 Italy,” with the letter “S.” I’m coming here because it looks like a lot of the Navajo pieces I have found online. I really hoping someone here can tell me something about this necklace. I’m so curious. Thank you for your time. Mary

From the picture it looks like the whole piece is one casting, same with the back, I don’t believe this is Navajo handmade. It is malachite, thanks for sharing
