9781331910817: Turquois Work of Hawikuh, New Mexico, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Turquois Work of Hawikuh, New Mexico, Vol. 2

Small turquois pendants (fig. 1) also were found with the dead, usually in such position as to indicate that they had been suspended from necklaces. There is no evidence of the wearing of turquoises attached to the nasal septum, as mentioned by the natives through whose country Fray Marcos passed, and there is no likelihood that such a custom was in vogue among the ancient Cibolans, since it is not mentioned by any of the Spanish chroniclers who were actually among them. As at present, little effort was made to give such pen dants a conventional form, the main object being to preserve as much as possible of the turquois; yet for convenience in stringing or sus pending them, they were sometimes made more or less triangular, but with rounded corners and edges.
