  • African Turquoise And Vintage Silver Pendant Necklace

    This funky necklace is made from round cut natural African turquoise, highlighted with sterling silver beads, a vintage Indian silver pendant and sterling silver findings and hook clasp.

    What is African turquoise? It's actually the trade name for a type of jasper that is mined only in Africa.  The stone is green blue in colour and is rich with inclusions of crystal quartz, iron and copper deposits in a matrix of black and brown veins, making this stone a beautiful substitute for the much more expensive traditional turquoise. Because of its inclusions, and with a hardness of 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale, African turquoise is a much harder stone than turquoise, which makes it great for jewellery of all types.
