Turquoise Chips 8-10mm Str16"


When looking at turquoise, origin often determines the color. Persian turquoise is usually a deep robin’s egg blue, while Himalayan turquoise is a more uniform green color. In the southern United States, turquoise ranges from a duck egg blue to deeper shades that are mottled with inclusions of pyrite and other minerals. The finest grades of turquoise are very expensive, but lower grades are more easily attainable. Blue and green glazed steatite was an early turquoise imitation that has been found in Egyptian graves from around 6000 years ago.

Turquoise is susceptible to scratches, breakage and color changes from heat, light, body oil, perspiration, and cosmetics so treat your beads well. Throughout history turquoise has been used to create or decorate sacred objects from Native American artifacts to ancient Egyptian scarabs. It is a stone of personal protection and healing. Use turquoise to help with exhaustion, depression and panic attacks.

Strands are 16” long with approximately 95 beads, which are irregular and vary in size.
