African "turquoise" is actually a jasper, but is called by its tradename due to its exotic blend of base color and dark matrix. These African "turquoise" beads are given a matte finish rather than a traditional bright polish. This matte appearance offers a soft look for coordinating with other matte surfaces or creating visual interest when paired with shiny gemstones or metals.
Hole Size: 0.5-1.5mm
