Turquoise is one of the oldest known protection stones. It carries great wisdom of basic truth within it. Taking on the qualities of the wearer, turquoise is a very personal stone growing in tandem with the wearer. It increases empathy and the ability to think positively reintroducing the brighter side of life if it had been lost to negativity.
Understand these are tumbled stones, each piece is unique, just like mother nature made them. No two will be alike.

The model is wearing 18" amethyst in gold plated with gold filled chain.
To maintain the finish as long as possible, avoid prolonged exposure to water as well as harsh chemicals. The copper will oxidize and darken over time giving it a warm deep finish. This is natural and every oxidation is unique to the person who wears it and the environment in which they live. The copper grows with you. You can bring back the original sheen by gently rubbing it with a soft polish cloth. Greening may happen. It doesn't happen to everyone. I leave the metals raw to avoid causing any reactions to additional chemicals. Gold-plate will not tarnish. The fine silver plate can tarnish, but with care the finish should last a long time.
Electroforming is the process of building up copper deposits on any object. The process can be very slow and it almost has a mind of its own. Sometimes there are striations in the copper, sometimes pits, sometimes there are little copper spheres. The results are always beautiful and unexpected making each piece entirely unique. Each piece had been cleaned up by hand and finished in the tumbler. The copper is absolutely raw... no added chemicals or sealants.
