All this turquoise just glows! 19th century turquoise nuggets were pump drilled and strung with olivella shell heishe. After all these years the heishe is wearing into the turquoise. Interspersed with a few turquoise discs and orange shell beads this is great natural turquoise, much of it is Cerrillos, but one spider web and one Blue Gem.
The tiny jaclas are mostly Blue Gem with some other pure blue, gem grade stone. Orange coral tube beads and one red glass bead finish them. Jaclas are 2 1/2" long.
Every thing has been restrung and newly wrapped in the old style. Total length is 16" top to bottom of the jaclas.
Buyer pays $20.00 for shipping and insurance.
