Now here is a rare set of Turquoise Beads – Bisbee Turquoise! These beads came out of a fantastic old Turquoise Jewelry collection Estell and I purchased over the winter. They came out of the shonto Indian Trading Post on the Northern Navajo Indian Reservation in the 1960’s . They were sold for old Turquoise Jewelry at that time.

They were Santo Domingo Indian made as  Bisbee Turquoise bead jatals or Jaw-cla’s. These wonderful jatals are made of Bisbee Turquoise heishi beads and finished off on the bottom of each jatal with hand cut mother of pearl beads. The ends of each jatal or jaclaw are finished off with red mediterranean coral beads.

This set of Bisbee Turquoise Beads probibly took about 1 1/2 lbs of Turquoise to make and Bisbee Turquoise is very expensive. Realistically they should be worth about $4000.oo.

Bisbee Turquoise – Turquoise Value

Bisbee Turquoise is quite possibly the most valuable Turquoise in earth for its mineral content and the fact that Turquoise may be one of the most metaphysical gemstones on earth.

Turquoise was originally found in Egypt about 5500 B.C. – Scriptures show that Spiritual leaders of the time prophet-sized that Turquoise was brought to earth by the powers above and that is got its color from the heavens. If you look up in the sky, it is blue and so was the Egyptian Turquoise that they found. Kings, Pharaohs and important past gods and goddesses tombs that have been excavated have Turquoise in them. In many cases such as King Tut, the actual embellishments of the coffins they were put to rest in are encrusted and inlaid with Turquoise.

Down through the ages and across this planet, different cultures unrelated to each other have worshipped Turquoise and shockingly all have come to the same conclusion, Turquoise has Spiritual and Metaphysical powers that will bring the bearers of the gemstone happiness, good health, fortune and harmony in life. Many people globally worship Turquoise and live in harmony, unaffected by the traumatic turmoil and unrest around the world. The people of Tibet, in general, live in harmony with the earth and you will find Turquoise Alters in almost every home in Tibet. See Tibetian Turquoise.

It is the minerals in Turquoise that cause the sky blue coloration as well as its metaphysical properties. In the 1940’s, the Native American Indians of the Southwestern United States came to the height of their spiritual beliefs regarding Turquoise when Bisbee Turquoise was discovered and brought to them. Bisbee Turquoise immediately became sacred and was coveted by the Native American Indians and then onto other cultures extending to many areas of the globe. See Bisbee Turquoise and
