Seen frequently throughout Native American jewelry, Sterling Silver "raindrops" are a traditional design element. They can be smooth and high polished or they can be starlike and oxidized.

The trade name “White Buffalo” is used to identify this beautiful stone coming out of Tonopah, Nevada. The Otteson mining family owns the mine where the white stone grows, surrounded by black chert which creates beautiful patterns, and sometimes in rare and more expensive pieces, a spider-web matrix. The stone grows in veins, is hard and cuts like turquoise, but is not technically turquoise, and is generally referred to as “White Buffalo”.

There are other times you will hear the term “White Buffalo Turquoise” which can be incorrectly used to refer to Magnesite or Howlite, calcite and quartz materials
