Extra large and extra chunky, this “chunker” is handmade in collaboration with Great Dame in Athens, GA. Large raw turquoise nuggets are entwined by two antique brass curb link chains.
Turquoise has been revered since ancient times as a symbol of great wealth, wisdom and protection and has a long history of use by kings, shamans and warriors. The name of this blue-green mineral is derived from French, meaning “Turkish stone”. Associated with the fifth/throat chakra, this necklace rests perfectly at the collar bone to activate clear communication.
