Give your designs an organic look with these African Turquoise beads from Dakota Stones. Available by the strand, these gemstone beads are perfectly round in shape, so you can use them in all kinds of styles. Each bead features a wide stringing hole, perfect for using with thicker stringing materials like leather cord. They feature turquoise blue and green colors with a black matrix and a muted matte finish. This stone is mined in Africa and is actually a type of spotted teal Jasper rather than turquoise. It is given its industry name because the matrix structure and shade is similar to that of turquoise. Metaphysical Properties: Often called the stone of evolution, African Turquoise Jasper encourages growth and development not only in the body, but in the mind. Some spiritualists believe that it will attract money to the wearer.
Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead. Each strand includes approximately 24 beads.
