Turquoise - Emerald Valley Chips/Tiny Nuggets: 8" strands
Listing is for one 8" strand of turquoise from the Emerald Valley mine in Nevada.
Individual beads are measuring approximately 1-2mm x 3-4mm.
This particular turquoise has been treated with the Zachery process, which does not use any fillers, but rather heat to strengthen the natural beauty of the stone.
Most turquoise on the market has been treated in some way and Zachery-processed turquoise is more natural than stabilized turquoise. It's the closest you'll get to the real thing.
Zachery treated turquoise does not depreciate in value. Instead, the color of the turquoise is more long lasting and therefore helps it to stay in its original natural state.
