Imperial Turquoise is really not a turquoise stone at all, but rather a form of Chocolate Jasper. The colors in this piece are really those of turquoise and chocolate, however. The interesting pattern on this stone is reminiscent of a globe. This piece is a bead, so there is no concern as to stability of the pendant, as the stone is securely in place.
The setting is woven of solid copper wire, and has had a patina added to bring out the details in the weaving. The pendant measures approximately 3 inches long and a bit more than an inch wide across the widest point. The pictured 18 inch chain is included. The pendant will ship in a decorative box, tied with an elegant satin bow, ready for gifting.
