Circular turquoise & howlite cabochons on copper & nickel Yin Yang backplate.

Reconstituted turquoise cabochon is 23 mm in diameter.

Howlite cabochon is 20 mm in diameter.

24 gauge copper on 20 gauge nickel backplate.

Backplate is 2.8 inches in diameter.

Cabochons are set in sterling silver bezel with twisted sterling silver accent.

Tension clasp holds bolo tie in place without fraying leather cord.

Imitation rhodium (silver) tips.

Black and gray braided leather cord is 46 inches long.

Reconstituted turquoise is made from low-grade chalk turquoise that has been ground into a powder, mixed with epoxy and dyes and compressed into a solid form. The solid cakes are then cut into shapes and mounted. They resemble natural turquoise to a degree, but should be sold at even lower prices than treated turquoise.

Turquoise has long been considered a stone that guarantees health, good fortune, and protection from evil.

Howlite, in its original form, has a dense white or light gray color. It’s a gemstone, which can also have some dark gray or black colored stripes like that of a spiders’ web. Howlite imitates the shape of the head of a cauliflower. It’s a complex crystal that includes borax, calcium, hydroxide, and silicon.

Some of the howlite gemstones feature translucent crystals on top of the nodules making it easy to absorb dyes well. This explains why howlite can easily mimic turquoise. In current years, many people make use of this attribute to emulate lapis lazuli, red coral, and other minerals. Moreover, howlite has been considered a perfect substitute stone for turquoise. Many native American jewelry styles are incorporated with the use of the howlite stone instead of the traditional gems.

The pure howlite gemstone is said to be good for concentration. It helps in relieving stress and curing insomnia. Howlite is also considered a memory stone. It is believed to boost memory and knowledge preservation. It helps a person improves his or her dexterity skills.
