SHELL HEISHI at the ends are about 1 3/8L. What IS KNOWN, these are genuine cut stones, not re-constituted or block Heishi which is in common use today. This is what differentiates value on some of the older Turquoise Heishi or Jackla pendants.
The QUALITY of the rocks! If youre strictly going for a look, you can most definitely find very reasonable specimens on line.
If you ARE all about the Rocks, then you want to study the stones and aesthetics before choosing a piece. CONDITION: Presents in very nice preowned & worn, originally strung condition. Its a longer length and could accommodate a pendant providing your bale was large enough to slip over the 9.5mm widest Heishi. All of the sterling (925) has developed an appropriate patina for its age. It is thought to be no older than 10-15 years.
I was originally going to take to an Indian shop to have shortened, but decided to leave alone as is unadulterated! Its a very nice longer length (23.25) for those that are not comfortable with a choker type strand..
