This is an old, somewhat rare, handmade focal bead from Tibetan.  Rare because it is a Tibetan bead made in Tibet before the uprising

The turquoise was not color treated or resin stabilized.  Beautiful shade of turquoise.  

The Nepalese and Tibetan people highly value Tibetan Turquoise for its spiritual nature and beauty.  They call it the Sky Stone, a piece of the heaven above.  The most desired color is Robin Egg's Blue.  This turquoise stone's coloring is close to that hue.

Modern Tibetan silver is an alloy with nickel or tin.  This is old Tibetan silver, probably imported from China, so it is actual silver.

The silver design is repousse, which means the design was hammered into little mounds from the underside.

This decorative bead measures 1.51 inches long by 0.82 inch wide by 0.51 inch thick.  As you can see in the second photo, the back is flat.  We did not shine it as many people prefer the look of the oxidation.

The natural turquoise stone itself measures 13.5mm wide by 19.5mm long.  The holes for stringing measure 1.5mm in diameter.  

Weighs 1/5 of an ounce.  Nepalese bead or more correctly, a Tibetan bead made in Nepal.

Turquoise Stone meaning:

There is a lot to be understood about Turquoise meaning if you are familiar with the zodiac signs as it is a combination of Cancer and Pisces energies and specifically enhances those born during the last ten days of the sign of Cancer.  

Excellent stone to wear during hypnosis. 

Turquoise often appears to a shaman or seer to be aware of a message to follow.

Turquoise Stone benefits: 

Wearing Turquoise stone jewelry encourages confidence to follow one's heart with conviction.  Consequently, the owner lives a life of honor.

If you need a more orderly or methodical lifestyle, keep your turquoise jewelry out on display.   

Wear your real Turquoise to business meeting to insure that you are treated with respect and that a fair deal is struck.  Also, turquoise stone is great to wear when choosing stocks or any kind of investment transaction. 

Keep your turquoise jewelry near your bedside so that passion combines with love. 

Turquoise healing properties: 

Ancient Egyptians incorporated real Turquoise into the saddles for horses and camels to give them strength and fortitude.  Wearing real Turquoise jewelry and imbibing turquoise elixir is advised for humans to strengthen both the structural body and the immune system.  Perhaps this is because the body is better able to assimilate what's needed from one's diet.  Turquoise elixir is often administered to those with anorexia.  

Turquoise stimulates tissue regeneration so wear following surgery, especially plastic surgery.  This may be because real turquoise (as opposed to dyed Howlite) gets blood flowing into muscle tissue.
