Turquoise Nuggets, 15x8mm
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.
These are non-graduated nuggets of Chinese turquoise, measuring between about 12-16mm each in length. This is really lovely material - the color ranges from a deep blue-green to paler turquoise with lots of swirls and crackles of brown matrix. Some of the China material is beautiful and this is a good example of the higher end.
