Purchased approximately 1975-6 by me at the DFW Airport Marina Hotel's Fred Harvey Store, a 28 inch Nugget Turquoise Heishi Necklace, graduated size turquoise nuggets and shell heishi necklace, closing with a barrel clasp.
Length: 28 inches
Largest nugget: 1.25 inches long
Lots of variety of color in the nuggets. They are mostly bright turquoise blue in color but show a variety of various shades of said blue and lots of places where they are starting to turn green from wear. Matrix is dark greenish and metallic looking.
Longer, flatter style nuggets are not bulky to wear, giving a bold appearance with out the weight and bulk of fully rounded nuggets.
I've really enjoyed it a lot – but time for someone else to love it and enjoy it more than I have in recent years.
I may have had these restrung professionally at the local NA Indian Owned lapidary shop in 1980s. That shop re-did one of the ones I purchased at that Fred Harvey store, but I can't recall if it was this one or one of the shorter ones.
