5mm Round Old Blue Arizona Kingman Turquoise Beads Designer Strand approximately 16 inch temporarily strung TQ-17108 Closeout Final Sale Jewelry Making Beading Supplies. We have not listed these strands separately as they are extremely consistent in color and matrix as seen in the group image above. Referred to as 'Old Blue' because this Turquoise rough was mined, processed and cut quite a few years ago (1980's to mid 1990's) and as you can see has a deeper blue coloring with more charcoal color matrix. As Turquoise is mined various colors emerge depending on the area being excavated and the time frame from mine to processing the rough to beads can be very timely.
Our American Kingman Turquoise bead strands are all natural color, natural cut stone and stabilized for durability (an acceptable and necessary process for enhancing the hardness of Turquoise for Jewelry Making). We take great care in separating the strands by color and describing their individual uniqueness to (hopefully) remove the stressful guesswork so you will not be surprised by what is delivered.
Although uncertain if 'Old Blue' Arizona Kingman Turquoise rough is still available, this Turquoise is no longer cut in calibrated precision Round Beads.
