My new beads. Any ideas what type of Turquoise this is?
Nice. The 4th photo reminds me of variscite.
Maybe i should research? Possibly not Turquoise? Either way they are beautiful stones. Not like i dont have every stone bead you can think of…but Varacite.
Looks like Turquoise. Most likely stabilized. Cutting is pretty basic and angular. Whoever cut it was primarily interested in preserving weight rather than creating a more domed cut designed for setting. I’m surprised it isn’t backed. Looks like it was rough cut and then tumble finished with just enough curve/chamfer on the edges for setting. Looks like Nevada to me, or perhaps stabilized Cerillos. Could also be Kingman?
It was laid out in a bib like necklace. I took it apart as i cant see Turquoise with sand stone and black agate, It was to painful to look at, Lol.Thank you so much for your time and im glad its Turquoise.
First blush, perhaps Fox, has that bluish green look.
Nice! Looks like mine. Hachita Turquoise, i will have to look that one up. Thank you
