Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Coral Heishi Necklace
This one-of-a-kind handcrafted necklace is made of Sleeping Beauty turquoise, fiery Mediterranean coral and baby olive heishi strung onto light brown waxed cord. Heishi are stones or shells cut into tiny, flat circular beads. The turquoise in this necklace is a rare, robin egg blue with slight matrix. Each end of the necklace is knotted near the ends, with the remainder of the necklace consisting of just the exposed cord so that it can be tied to the desired length. 33.5" long untied, end to end
This turquoise is sourced from the Sleeping Beauty turquoise mine, which is recognized for having produced some of the finest turquoise in the world.
