Great look! Turquoise, Red and Silver are a classic combination of beauty. The necklace has a dramatic, but everyday feel; and I think the color is outstanding.
The magnesite is stabilized for strength and the the nuggets are 12-14mm x 15-17mm, with black and brown matrix. The Bamboo Coral has likely been color enhanced.
Magnesite is a natural and porous stone that is commonly dyed to produce vivid colors and more commonly to simulate Turquoise. It has the same hardness and texture as turquoise and marble. It has a dull luster to it, sometimes looking like unglazed porcelain. The most common color is white although the mineral can also be colorless, yellow, gray, tan or pink.
The necklace measures 20 inches.
