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.
