WHITE CREEK TURQUOISE Beads Rondelles 5mm Extremely Rare 18"
Very rare and beautiful 100% natural White Creek Turquoise beads recently hand cut from rough material that has been in storage for over 40 years. Gorgeous Robin`s egg blue untreated turquoise! The mine is located in northeast Nevada, in the cluster of mines including Lander, No. 8, Blue Gem, Dry Creek and Fox, but has been out of production since the 80`s. This is the original "white" Turquoise, the unusually light blue color is due to the presence of Aluminum rather than copper. This is similar in coloring to the Dry Creek Turquoise that came out of the Godber mine. These stunning south western style beads measure 5mm diameter and between 2.5 to 35mm in height. This is incredibly rare Turquoise and a wonderful investment! You will receive a full 18" strand.
