African Turquoise is mined in Africa and is actually in the jasper family, not turquoise. Because the matrix of African Jasper and Turquoise are so similar, it has become so much in-demand now that new turquoise is no longer available. With machine-drilled holes, laddering with Tuff Cord #3 or Fine Weight C-Lon is a breeze. Beads are round but expect slight variations in shape, color and size.
Sold on 8 inch strands. Approximately 33 beads per strand. Imported by Dakota Stones.
