These are old stock - natural Seafoam Turquoise Beads. They are a nice blue color with some green tints and black matrix running through them. The turquoise is all natural and not dyed, it most likely came from the Lone Mountain Mine. It is an intense and deep blue color with black spider web matrix, it is nicely matched turquoise, but under close examination you can see the slight color variations that exist in natural (not dyed) gemstones. Sea Foam Turquoise is one of the rarer and most collectible type and there is little for sale in the market today. It is old stock turquoise and you get this exact strand.
The beads average size is 15 x 10mm
Sold on 16 inch strand
