UITA 22 bracelet weighing 41 grams. The interior measurement is
5 3/8" with a 1" gap. UITA 22 is attributed to Manuelito Trading Post (Dean Kirk). The UITA stamp was created for the first time in 1946 to hallmark. Users of the stamp had to abide by regulations and pay an annual fee. Some examples of the regulations were that the turquoise could not be treated or enhanced and that casting and die-making was required to be completed by Indians and no mechanization could be used except for cleaning and polishing. The minimum purity was 900 fine for the silver content. UITA was formed to help protect the manufacture and sale of genuine Inian goods and to improve business practices to provide these genuine products.
