Turquoise - White Water Nuggets: 8" strands
Listing is for one 8" strand of beautifully-webbed turquoise from the White Water mine in Mexico.
Strands appear to be slightly graduated, creating a variety of bead sizes. Individual beads are measuring approximately 4x6mm at the smallest, and up to 7x12mm at the largest, however each strand is completely unique.
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.
