Turquoise - Turquoise Mountain Large Nuggets: 8" strands
Listing is for one 8" strand of stunningly beautiful turquoise from the Turquoise Mountain mine in Nevada.
The colors are amazing in these strands: beautiful greens and blues that meld together in the same stones - just gorgeous!
Individual stones are measuring approximately 10-12mm - 12-17mm.
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.
