Item details

Handmade

Material

Gemstone: Turquoise

This necklace really is a statement piece. The alternating rich hues of turquoise demand attention. I also like to think it has some historical value as turquoise has been an important gemstone in many cultures for thousands of years. Although this piece is not ancient, it still may have been worthy for an Egyptian or Aztec Goddess to wear. The findings are sterling silver, including the "S" hook clasp.

The shortest length is about 17 and 1/4 inches.
……………………………………………………………………………………………..

Turquoise is an opaque mineral that ranges in color from sky blue to various shades of green or greenish and yellowish gray with brown, dark gray, or black veins of other minerals or the host rock (matrix). One specimen of turquoise can contain different colors. The blue in turquoise is enhanced when copper is present. If the area where turquoise is formed contains more aluminum, the turquoise will shade to green. When zinc is present, the deposits are a yellow-green color. While strong sky blues remain superior in value, mottled green and yellowish material is popular with artists. When stones are cut, some of the matrix remains. Turquoise is usually very soft and is therefore stabilized. There are several methods, but usually a clear epoxy resin is used to fill the pores of the stone, which does not alter the stone itself or its appearance. However, color dye can be added to enhance the stone's color and is best recognized by its translucent plastic appearance. Color enhanced turquoise looks unnatural because it appears too blue and too highly polished. Special care should be given to turquoise jewelry.
