Turquoise - Nevada Fox Graduated Strand
Listing is for one 16" strand of stunningly beautiful turquoise from the Nevada Fox mine in Nevada.
The colors are amazing in these strands: beautiful teal greens and deep turquoise blues that meld together in the same stones - simply stunning!
As graduated strands, beads are measuring as large as 9x12mm and down to 5x5mm on the small ends.
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.
