This piece is composed of a handcarved bone turtle, suspended from a necklace of turquoise pebbles and rounds, with lots of copper and bali silver of several different shapes.
The stones were sold as genuine turquoise....
Stone is stablized and definitely color enhanced.
The color is bluish teal with chocolate patches . Pebbles are satin finish, rounds are shiney. Makes me think of mint chocolatechip ice cream. Strung as they are with copper, they are very pleasent to look at.
The rounds are turquoise colored magnesite and very nice quality.
Findings are a mix of good silverplate and solid copper. Catches are silverplated. Bracelet has a unique snap style catch...once you have used this type you will never go back to any other kind.
As always if I am not certain about a stone I will tell you so...and I sell them for less because of that fact.
