- 18K gold-filled 5mm beads
- Gold plated, turquoise bar
Turquoise is known as the "master healer," a purification stone. Though grounded and protected, it provides higher energy levels for healing and cleansing. It unites the earth and the sky, bringing together the male and female energies, stimulating romantic love.
Gold-filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It is water friendly and will last much longer than gold plated jewelry.
