White Turquoise and Purple Quartz Bead Necklace with Handmade Sterling Silver
Looking for something different in a formal style bead necklace? Take a look at this fashion style White Turquoise and Purple Quartz Bead Necklace with Thai Silver beads by Nattarika Hartman. This necklace is at the top of current fashion. The multi strand purple and white bead necklace features three strands of top grade Purple Quartz round beads mixed with White Buffalo Turquoise beads. White Buffalo Turquoise is not actually a Turquoise it has been tested to be “Opalized Calcite”, but on the street it has the nickname “White Turquoise” and comes from the famous White Buffalo mine in Tonopah, Nevada USA. It does have some of the same minerals that make up Turquoise, but not enough to be considered Turquoise by GIA. This White Turquoise and Purple Quartz Bead Necklace some of the best and most matrix free White Turquoise beads we have seen. Two of the strands are made up of smaller round shaped purple Quartz beads that look like gem grade Sugilite. Purple quartz is a fairly new stone and does not command the prices that gem grade natural Sugilite brings, which allow us to bring you this necklace at a much better price than the same piece made out of ultra-pricy Sugilite beads. The ends of each strand of beads in the piece are accented with handmade Thai Silver beads. These awesome Sterling Silver beads where handmade in Thai Hilltribe Villages in Northern Thailand. The Purple Quartz beads have been stabilized. All the beads are strung on bead-a-lon wire and are finished off with a handmade sterling silver clasp. This amazing handmade Sterling Silver clasp features an intricate filigree silver design. This fine White Turquoise and Purple Quartz Bead Necklace was artisan handcrafted in Durango, Colorado USA.
