African Purple Turquoise Necklace


African turquoise is actually a jasper, characterized by its turquoise color. This particular piece is dyed a lovely shade of purple with gorgeous creamy white patterning. The beads are 16mm, nice and chunky for today's fashions. I've added small sterling silver balls as spacers and a sturdy trigger clasp, also in sterling.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The necklace is 18 inches long.

Note: Fire Agate is a layered stone. The layers are small enough that light entering them forms interference colors known as "fire." Alternating silica and iron oxide layers (Schiller layers) cause the brilliant fire in the gem. As iron oxide runs out in the solution colorless chalcedony continues to grow.

Fire agates are found in Kingman Az, to Needles, Ca. area around the Colorado River and also in Mexico.

Enjoy wearing this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
