These are genuine - AA quality natural turquoise heishi beads. They are polished heishe slices that are graduated from 10mm to 17mm. This Chinese turquoise is a beautiful natural blue green color with very little matrix. The strands are 17½" long, a little longer than standard. All you need to do is add a clasp and you'll have a gorgeous necklace. This is not dyed and it is not Howlite.
Size: 10 - 17mm
Sold on 17½ inch strands
I bought out an estate of a 95 year old designer from Texas who traveled the world and collected beads. She made many buying trips to Tucson and I suspect this is where all her turquoise came from. I will be adding a lot of turquoise and antique beads in the next few months so be sure and check back.
