This delicate and earthy bracelet is made of 8mm purple "african turquoise" stones that have an interesting texture and wonderful deep bellflower lustre. Each stone is like a little globe, with sand colored lines etching their way throughout. I don't normally work with gold, but the purple looks quite refined with the stardust bead that hides the elastic knot. 22 genuine stones in all, one 8mm gold-filled 14k 1/20 round stardust bead, and high quality jeweler's elastic. These fit a 6.5 inch wrist. African turquoise is a kind of Jasper. Jasper encourages peace of mind and a general feeling of nurture and well being. Both stones protect against as well as dissipate anger and other negative energies whether from oneself or others.
