These are gorgeous quality Hubei Turquoise beads. They are undyed, and have a really unique matrix. They are a vibrant teal blue hue, but have a brown/black and dark red in the matrix! The dark red areas make these beads really unique. If you love them, grab them while you can, because I may never be able to get Turquoise like these again. Every time I try to buy the same Turquoise again from the same vendor, the new lots always look different. Every lot of Turquoise is unique.
All the strands have the exact same flat oval bead measurement of 19x24mm.

Combined Shipping I combine shipping on multiple items. There is a base shipping fee, then each additional item has a small extra fee based on weight or size. Some items add $0.25 or $0.50 to the shipping price, a large or heavy item may add $1.00 or more. If your shipping charge is $2.00 or more over what I actually pay, the shipping overage will be refunded to the buyer. If you have any questions about the shipping price you are being charged on your order, don't hesitate to contact me about it.
International (excluding USA) If your order weighs over 300g, your parcel will be shipped by surface mail (6-14 weeks) to keep shipping prices economical. If you are unsure about the weight, contact me before purchasing. Or I can also give you a price quote for air mail, which usually costs around $16+ USD. I always try my best to avoid import duties or tax charges on international orders, and I purposely don't include a receipt. But if you are charged, the costs are the responsibility of the buyer. I'm doing the best that I can to try and avoid it.
Tracking Tracking on parcels is crazy expensive in Canada Post, so all parcels are shipped without tracking to keep shipping prices the most economical. I have shipping upgrades for Canada and USA that include tracking. Checking your shopping cart to find the shipping upgrades available. For the rest of the world, I have a (very pricey) shipping upgrade with tracking. I’m sorry about the price, but that is what it costs in Canada, and is the best I can offer.
Lost Parcel If your parcel hasn’t shown up by a specific time, I will either reship your order if I still have the items in stock, or I will give a full refund. Contact me if your parcel hasn’t shown up by these times:
Canada: 6 weeks (Southern Ontario: 4 weeks) USA: 5 weeks USA Shipping Upgrades: 4 weeks UK/Europe: 6 weeks Other International: 12 weeks International Surface: 4 months
I will only fulfill a lost parcel by these times stated.
I accept payments via PayPal, and Etsy’s Direct Checkout system. If you are having trouble with the checkout process, please contact me. If you require a little more time to pay, I would be happy to reserve the item for you for a short time.
