A strand of Turquoise disk beads traded in Ghana, W. Africa. Found for Funky Frog by Hidir, a favourite Trader. Each strand is about 32″ and the beads are about 1×6 mm strung on string. The beads are handmade so will vary in size, shape and colour.
After some research it seems these beads are probably Howlite a stone or gem in and of itself but also well known for its ability to be dyed and look like other stones/gems. Howlite is a stone of patience and perspective, for those who feel they need to slow it down, absorb, and clear the constant stream of chatter from the mind, it’s a crystal that marries you to a more mindful way of life. So not ‘real’ turquoise’ but still a treasure!
