Product description

Bead made from treated semi-precious stone Turquoise with a large hole and round shape in the style of Pandora - mixed

Turquoise is perhaps the oldest talismanic stone in human history. It is a strong and dense protective stone, whose touch soothes and whose appearance heals. Its irresistible shades seem to have captured all the angelic gentleness of the heavens, while the earthy brown veins further enhance its character. For thousands of years, it has been valued by all cultures as a symbol of wisdom, nobility, love, and the power of immortality. Useful Information: High-quality, untreated natural turquoise is very rare in the market and is exceptionally expensive. It is primarily used by established designers and purchased by collectors. This turquoise has greater hardness and a more intense and stable color. The standard jewelry-grade turquoise is second in quality. It is slightly softer, and the color varies, sometimes being very pale, having a grayish tint, or too many veins. This accounts for about 20% to 30% of the total turquoise mined. Low-quality natural turquoise is not suitable for jewelry due to its low hardness and poor color, which also tends to fade further. This turquoise makes up 60% of turquoise mine production and is usually turned into stabilized or enhanced turquoise. Enhanced turquoise is impregnated with vaporized quartz. This makes it harder and deepens its color. After this treatment, the turquoise looks much better and no longer changes its color. The stabilization of turquoise has been perfected mainly by American manufacturers, who use pressure and heat to fill the microscopic pores in the stone with synthetic resin. This makes the stone hard enough to be cut and polished. Treating turquoise with wax is an ancient technique where the turquoise is covered with a thin layer of wax. This makes it shinier and improves the color, but it is only superficial and does not affect the hardness. Tibetan turquoise jewelry is often treated this way. Reconstituted is another term describing powdered turquoise waste from stone cutting, mixed with blue dye and a polymer binder. Compressed is a similar product made from larger pieces. There is no reason to believe that improved, stabilized, or wax-treated turquoise do not carry all the metaphysical properties of turquoise, and reconstituted and compressed also contain dust or pieces of the material, hence their energetic pattern. As for aesthetic qualities, you can judge for yourself. Due to the specific market situation of turquoise, we provide all these details in cases where we do not have enough information about its quality.
