8 mm African Turquoise Jasper beads are AA grade and gorgeous. Earthy yet nicely polished they are a beautiful and rich blend of blues and blue greens with a good amount of matrix. Make beautiful and earthy jewelry and craft items with these high quality round gemstone beads.

Note" These beads may look more blue than they are on some monitors. While some beads are a little more blue over all beads are a rich blue green. The shades do vary a bit but i'd say they are more on the green side.

Although the trade name is African Turquoise this stone is really a spotted African Jasper that resembles Turquoise and can be as beautiful. It is often mistaken for Turquoise. Africa does not produce Turquoise, so don't be fooled!

Amount ..8" approx 21-24 natural gemstone round beads
Size .........8 mm
Hole...... regular for beading wire
Beads may arrive loose.
Color ..Beautiful blends and variations of blues and blue green with mostly black/ gray and some brown matrix.

Folklore:
Overall Jasper is believed by some to have grounding and balancing energies. It is said to absorb negative energy, and to encourage self honesty and courage, stimulate imagination and promote tranquility and positive attitude. It is often called the Supreme nurturer.
African Turquoise jasper in particular is said to open the mind to new ideas while bringing structure and balance and encouraging positive change and growth.

Note: Beads may appear bigger or smaller in the pictures than they actually are..
Sizes are approx.
Note: I try my best to show and describe color accurately however I can not guarantee it since color shows differently on different monitors

Note: These are NOT big hole beads.

******** Canada Flat Rate Shipping for most items******
Many of my items are heavy, so those items will have a secondary charge. If i find I have collected too much from the secondary charge I will refund the extra.
Please understand that shipping is not just postage, but also insurance, fees and packing supplies, etc. I like many sellers am bewildered with the recent postage rate hikes, and am trying hard to sort it all out.

USA AND INTERNATIONAL
Shipping Overcharges
Most items ship first class, some ship Priority. If you order numerous items and your total shipping cost adds up to more than I need to ship it to you safe and soundly, I will refund you the difference as I always have.

IMPORTANT International Buyers
Etsy has added some wording on some invoices about taxes and vats that is confusing. Please let me know in notes to seller that you understand you are responsible for all taxes, vats, duties and charges your country charges you to import items.. These are not included in your item or shipping price. If you don't tell me in notes to seller I will send you a convo or email and will wait to ship until I hear from you.. I am very sorry for this inconvenience. thanks, Cat

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING:
As of 9/10/2014 Etsy has made changes to shipping. You will no longer see my secondary shipping until you put your selected items into your cart. Each item will have the first shipping listed as the price for shipping that item, when in fact if you are buying multiples items, each one after the first will be much less than the shipping price quoted in the listing.

Shipping: Your purchase will normally ship within 3 business days.. However special and custom orders may take a little longer. I will discuss the wait time with you through etsy message or email.

Special Instructions to your mail carrier: I hold no authority to give your PO or postal carrier instructions as to when, how or where they are to leave your package. Any special instructions you may need followed is something you will have to to discuss and work out with them and take responsibility for.

Shipping 2 transactions together:
This is not something I make a habit of doing. Pay Pal frowns on this and there can be a problem with insurance if the package is lost .Please purchase your items in one transaction if you want them shipped together. Because I often ship very fast, I may not even see your second transaction until your first one is shipped. Leaving a note in notes to seller is not a guarantee they will ship together.


Away Message:
Also if you are in a hurry for your order, please check my shop announcement. Occasionally I need to take a few days off which could delay shipping a day or two. If have to be away for a full day or more I will give you the heads up in my announcement.

Delivery dates:
Please understand that I can only promise when I will ship, not when the PO will deliver it. I can tell you what is probable but can not guarantee what the PO will do.
If you need it really quick, It is best to contact me to discuss before buying. It takes time to process your orders and once it is shipped the average amount of time for actual domestic shipping should be figured to be 3 or more days depending on the PO and where you are, and if it is a weekend or a holiday.

International orders may arrive in about 10 days, but 2 weeks is more realistic and it sometimes can take up to 6 weeks. Please order in plenty of time as I can not guarantee a quick delivery time.
If you are concerned about your shipment you may want to contact your PO or customs to see if it is held up there.

In the case your package is really lost. I will file an insurance claim. Buyer will be expected to cooperate with the insurance requirements.

Orders canceled because of unrealistic delivery demands may be subject to cancellation fees to cover Paypal transaction fees and /or other expenses.
I would love to get it to you in a matter of minutes or hours, but I am not Super Cat.. but I do my best and ship as quickly as I can.


Shipping Address:
Please make sure you Paypal address is correct, as that is the one I ship to. I ship to the address Paypal supplies for you. If you would like your purchase to go to a different address enter it in the send gift to area in your paypal prior to completing your payment.* This protects us both and there are no exceptions. You are responsible to make sure that your PayPal address is updated, complete and correct. Be sure to include apt or unit #'s. If your address is wrong or incomplete and the PO deems it UN-deliverable, you will be responsible for all shipping costs, including the cost to reship.

Shipping rates:
I am sorry that shipping is now so high, but there is not much I can do about it. International shipping just about tripled on 1/27/2013.
I have spent a good amount of time figuring out the amount I need to ship to your country. It usually comes out just about right. However in the event I have charged you more than I need, I will refund you the difference through Paypal.

Other Fees you may be charged:
International buyers are responsible for any extra fees, duties,brokerage charges or other any charges put in place by your country. Please make sure you understand your countries laws before purchasing . If you refuse a shipment I can refund only once the package is safely back in my hands, less all shipping costs and any fees I may incur to get it back.
Also Please do not ask me to mark it gift. Marking it as a gift is mail fraud. If you ask this of me your order will be canceled and your money refunded through Paypal.

DISCOUNT ON SHIPPING!
You Still Pay Less Shipping on multiple item orders. Etsy has made it so you can't see what you are really paying for additional items until you put them in your cart. What you are seeing when you click on shipping is the first shipping cost. That is the shipping cost for the 1st item only. You still get a discount on additional items. You will see this when you put the additional items in your cart.
I also refund when more shipping is collected then needed.


Payment... PayPal or Etsy EP
