These are fabulous old stock Carico Lake green turquoise beads. The beads are cut and polished into nuggets. They are drilled through the center. The Carico Lake Turquoise Mine in Nevada is most known for its spectacular shades of lime green colored turquoise, which is due to its zinc and copper content. Carico Lake Turquoise has become very popular and highly collectible in recent years for its beautiful shades of a spring colored lime green with spiderweb matrix. I just love this striking green colorization, one of the prettiest nature has created. They are rare and highly collectible beads.
