Here is a tribal necklace. I am not sure from what tribe. Maybe someone can help? It consist of bone (probably buffalo), shells, turquoise, rock, a tooth (wolf or coyote) and it looks strung together by hair of some kind... maybe horse?

@Ciranelli86,
It does not look like anything from the Southwestern tribes or Pueblos. Otherwise, no help.

@Ciranelli86,
They make these things in China, for dime store sales in the U.S., so there is no guarantee of anything authentic here. Also turquois and sharks teeth do not typically overlap in geography.

@DNA Thumbs drive,
Yeah, sharks usually stay in oceans.

It's not a shark's tooth. That's for certain.

@DNA Thumbs drive,
With all do respect... I'm most certain that is not a shark tooth as for shark teeth are much flatter, wider and have jagged saw like edges. They almost resemble an arrowhead stone. I'd be willing to bet they are dog K9. Also, if this was made in China I don't think it would be made of real bone and strung with animal hair.

@DNA Thumbs drive,
And the shells you see are fresh water snail shells.

@FBM,
Sand Tiger perhaps.

Or just a whittled down piece of bone, it sure isn't from a Grizzly

Checking in.
I don't know native american jewelry well, I imagine it's complex, it must be. I'm no expert on any jewelry, though I tend to like it. Not too long ago I lived in a locale with many tribes (northwest U.S). I now live in a tribal locale in New Mexico too, sort of adjacent, but I got acquainted with several more people of tribal background back there.

Anyway, I'm interested, will follow.

@rosborne979,
wheres a shark' tooth? That white thingy is a segmnt of bone, you can see the striations and carving. Teeth have unique laminae.

It is probably something for the tourist trade. Theres a piece of scratched slate or steatite that is probably supposed to emulate something that's almost like those Ika stones.

Is the threading sinew or plied fiber?

@ossobuco,
Native American jewelry can be high art if its well crafted. This stuff Is rather amateurish. Its like one of these ID seen at an "art" bizarre in a gun how where "rangers" were knapping chert to make these fake Transitionl points.

Moon’s Origin: Before the astronauts’ moon rocks conclusively disproved the theory, the moon was believed to have originated when a chunk of Earth broke off eons ago (who knows from where?).
Another theory was that the moon was created from leftover "space dust" remaining after the Earth was created. Analysis of the composition of moon rocks disproved this theory also.
