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.

What You're Saying About our African Turquoise Beads



Really Nice Turquoise!

Rating
I am so pleased with these beads. Beautifully finished with soft dark flecks. They are a "can't miss" item for the turquoise lover. I'm using them with Auntie's amazing brass Tibetan style disc Pendant, item number 23439 (another can't miss item for sure) that is inlaid with african turquoise and coral. I have no doubt that I will achieve a statement necklace!

Beautiful color

These are very nice beads. The african turquoise color is great and perfect for my double wrap bracelet with the second row being silver 4mm beads and a large button.
