Squash Blossom Necklace Navajo Sterling Silver Turquoise S

Vintage Navajo style Squash blossom necklace.
This necklace is C. 1970s and was made during the Native American Jewelry Boom that happened around 1975. I purchased it from the original owner.  
It is set with very nice American turquoise that is deep blue in color with black matrix. 
There are 10 blossoms that measure 1 3/4" long. Each is set with a genuine turquoise stone and embellished with a leaf and raindrops. The naja is set with 7 turquoise stones. Naja measures 3 1/2" wide and 3 1/4" tall. The bench beads, called hogans are 8mm in diameter.  
It is not marked with metal purity. Acid tests sterling silver.  
Measure 25 1/2" long. Strung on doubled cable.
This necklace weighs 190 grams. 
I have not cleaned or polished it to preserve the patina.
