These hand-cut semi graduated wafer beads are cut from stabilized Turquoise from the Apache Mine in Nevada. The Apache Mine is famous for being a Variscite rich Turquoise deposit and the colors of Apache Turquoise naturally ranges from an intense highly saturated sky blue to a near teal green with brown matrix.

The colors are, of course,  all natural. The hand cut variegated wafers are a classic Southwestern style. Each strand would make an excellent necklace with just a finishing touch of a clasp… or become the basis of something even more unique. American mined and processed.
