“Ioni ” necklace is constructed by reticulated sterling silver 925.
The gemstone is a natural tibetan turquoise 8mm round shaped gemstone.
Reticulation refers to a finishing technique involving the application of localised heat to the surface of the metal, which provides textured surfaces that appear very ‘natural’.
Tibetan turquoise is formed by the percolation of groundwater through aluminous rock in the presence of copper – and the intense underground conditions around the Himalayan Mountain Range have, over many millions of years, given us a beautiful colour of this gem. It tends to be blue-green in colour and is sought after for this fact as most Turquoise found elsewhere leans more towards the blues.
Every necklace may vary a bit, since it is handmade and gemstones are natural and genuine.
