100% natural Turquoise beads.

Turquoise beads are prized for their bright blue-green color and have been used in jewelry and ornamentals for thousands of years. 

Turquoise is found in arid regions where water has percolated through rock, depositing minerals along the way. The most prized turquoise is found in the southwestern United States, specifically in Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada. Hubei, China is also an abundant source of quality Turquoise and constitutes a majority of Turquoise beads available today, as much of the USA deposits have been depleted over the years.

Turquoise is a relatively soft and porous mineral with a Mohs hardness ranging from 5-6, so it should be treated with care to avoid damage. Despite this, it remains a popular choice for jewelry due to its vibrant color and cultural significance.

Turquoise is the birthstone of December.

Recommendations

For beads 4mm and smaller, it is recommended to start with stringing wires no larger than .013inch / .33mm. This will ensure a proper fit and in most cases allow for feeding of the wire tip back through the beads for a clean finish.

Elastic cords can be used with beads 4mm and larger, but it will not fit through most beads smaller than 4mm. It's recommended to use 0.5mm elastic cord.

These recommendations are intended to help guide you for a successful project. With time and experience you'll discover what works best for your designs.

Perfect subtle sparkles!

I love how these faceted turquoise beads add a subtle touch of sparkle. I had a treasured, vintage turquoise pendant that I wanted to showcase, and these were perfect. I added accents of color with red jasper (also in this same order) and I am so delighted with my "new" necklace.
