Turquoise, Sleeping Beauty Nugget, 7mm
We love turquoise - who doesn't? Treasured throughout the world since antiquity for its vivid and variable blue-green hue, turquoise is viewed as a master healer, a protective stone and is valued simply for its beauty.
This is the pinnacle of American turquoise - vivid sky blue, minimal matrix, glossy and durable! The Sleeping Beauty mine has been closed for a few years, but the turquoise it produced is legendary, and stashes of the stuff keep turning up under beds and in closets.
These are top-notch, clear and bright chunky mini-nuggets of the primo stuff. Maximum dimension is about 7mm and the overall length per strand is 16".
