Back after a four-year absence! We've had many requests to bring back Purple Turquoise, but had difficulties trying to source the Kingman metal matrix turquoise material needed to cut beads. Finally, we were able to acquire the material at the end of 2017. Unfortunately, our cutters had issues polishing the material, and we received far fewer strands than we hoped. Further, the look of the end product was not the same quality we have seen in past batches. The strands are still beautiful, but the polish on the stone is more matte in appearance, and the metal matrix is not as bright as we would have liked.
Although we are a little disappointed with the final product, we still wanted to offer the strands to you. There are limited quantities available of each style and, as always, we stand behind our a products. If it doesnít meet with your approval, send it back to us. We want you to love your Dakota Stones.
