African Turquoise (Jasper)
African Turquoise BeadsConfusion around the term "turquoise" is rampant. African "turquoise" is actually a trade name, and the stone is jasper, not turquoise. However, the jasper really is found in Africa. African "turquoise" has a dark matrix and an interesting blend of base colors, a little greener than most turquoise. It can be dyed to achieve the turquoise-like color. 

It is a beautiful stone to make jewelry with, but if you sell your jewelry pieces you should let your customers know that it's not turquoise.

SmartBeadShopping™ Tip: One advantage of African jasper is that it is harder than turquoise.
