This necklace is made of faceted and twisted elongated beads of natural stabilized blue Turquoise. The larger nugget of Turquoise hanging from the round sterling silver toggle is from the Campitos Mine, in Sonora, Mexico. Small faceted Pyrite beads sparkle between the elongated Turquoise beads. Flower-shaped silver-plated Hematite beads are found at the pendant, at the ends of the necklace and the pair of matching earrings. The necklace can be worn, with the toggle clasp and pendant in front or at the back of the neck. An eye-catching necklace perfect for the turquoise lover!
Turquoise has been associated with gods and goddesses of many ancient cultures from China, the Middle East, and the Americas. It was worn by Pharoahs and Aztec Kings. Native Americans used the stone symbolizing the sea and sky coming together, to bless warriors and hunters. Turquoise is thought to attract prosperity and success, enhance creativity and communication. Turquoise is the alternate birthstone for December. Most of the Turquoise sold today is enhanced or stabilized for durability. Turquoise from the Campitos mine is light blue in color, with a grey/black matrix and some pyrite.
