This commanding necklace showcases the wonder of top quality natural turquoise. Like walking on sunshine, turquoise is the feel good stone. After a long hard winter, who isn't ready to greet the sun in style? Measuring an astounding 43 inches long, this necklace is comprised of beads ranging from 15.5mm at center down to 8.9mm. We do not know the exact mine origin and we estimate age to be 1970's-1980's.
This turquoise exudes a luxurious, true turquoise hue, greenish blue, with black to brown matrix displayed, and each bead unique. The color is natural and not dyed. These beads are full rounds with a high polish sheen. This sheen or polish helps protect natural turquoise from color changing caused by contact with skin oils and lotions.
This is genuine turquoise that has been tested and certified natural at GIA NYC and the pictured GIA ID Report is included with this purchase. GIA's stringent computerized testing has discerned impregnation of wax or other substance, normal in cutting turquoise, and has included impregnated under the treatment reference. Any sort of surface treatment even electronic Zachery treated is categorized by GIA as impregnated without dissemination.
