Cylinders of blue green Turquoise are separated by hexagonal Copper-plated Hematite spacers to create this simple, yet eye-catching necklace. The focal point of this necklace is a rustic hammered Copper-plated Pewter cross. A small toggle of the same style completes the necklace. The Turquoise beads used in this necklace are from China. Beautiful on a lady, yet rugged enough for a man!
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.
