African Turquoise Beads
African Turquoise is the trade name for a jasper that is mined in Africa. It has a coloration and matrix structure very similar to that of turquoise. The base color of these beautiful gemstone beads ranges from light aqua to deep turquoise and is intermixed with a matrix of rich chocolate brown. These African turquoise beads possess a rich, smooth luster – there is no chalkiness in their texture or appearance.
African Turquoise is a perennial classic that can be incorporated into funky, casual designs or into elegant, more formal pieces.
