Description

The graduated Chinese turquoise roundel beads on this strand feature a blue to greenish color with a dark matrix—each bead has a varying amount of matrix, giving the strand a one-of-a-kind look. The beads look great when strung on their own in a bold necklace, used individually as spacers or when combined with complementary-color beads in necklace, earring and bracelet designs. Sourced from China, this turquoise features green/blue color and displays quite a bit of matrix, which gives each stone significant contrast and unique patterning.

Turquoise is a soft, opaque gemstone that takes a good polish. Its sky blue color comes from the presence of copper; green tones are provided by iron traces. Turquoise sometimes has a rock matrix and varying shades of gray, brown or black veining due to inclusions or oxide stains.

Ready to string, each package contains one temporarily strung 15"–16" strand.
