Vintage Turquoise Necklace
N203 - $195 SOLD
Paula says - "Polished nuggets and slabs of beautiful blue and green turquoise with lots of matrix. White shell and turquoise heishi between the large stones. Slips over the head - no clasp needed.
"One piece of turquoise heishi is missing and one stone has a piece missing as shown in the photo below but because this necklace is made from a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and the slabs can be swung many ways, the missing pieces are hardly noticeable – it took me a while to spot them!!"
TURQUOISE is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It is known as a master healer stone as it is believed to help speed the healing process. It is also thought that turquoise can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart.
Turquoise comes in all shades of blue, to blue-green and it is the natural variations in turquoise that make it appealing. The color of turquoise in American Indian jewelry ranges from brownish green to bright blue. Found in veins sandwiched in between layers of mother rock, turquoise can show some of the influence of the mother rock in its matrix or veining. The matrix colors range from blue to golden brown to black and sometimes with golden flecks. Many people prefer turquoise with matrix over clear stones. Read more about stones.
