About Block Turquoise
Block turquoise is comprised of epoxy, dye, and crushed stone. Block turquoise is often more consistent in color, pattern and hardness than natural stone and is more suitable for applications such as inlay knife handles or rings that may be subject to abrasion and moisture.
What is a jacla?
Originally, the jacla was a pair of heishi earrings that were tied onto the necklace, as much for storage as decoration. Later, loops of heishi specific for this purpose were tied onto the lower center of the stone necklace. A variation of this is a Jacla with vertical slab or chunk stones at the center or a layered disc with bead loops hanging from the disc. Read more about jaclas.
