Absolutely stunning extra long at 44" inches Gemstone Necklace, created using 100% Natural and Genuine Selenite, Lapis lazuli, Turquoise, Blue Apatite and Impression Jasper (see disclaimer below). Only Top Quality Crystals were used in the creation of this magnificent Necklace. Since this necklace design is quite long, it can be wore in many different ways.
I actually created this necklace for myself and was not going to list it for sale, until a customer saw me wearing it and asked how to buy it, so I listed it for sale. My favorite color is purple and I love Impression Jasper (colors/patters) so I made it for myself out of pure pleasure. The only reason why I was not going to list it is because I pride myself is selling ONLY 100% Natural and Genuine Gemstone Jewelry and this necklace have Blue/Purple Impression Jasper which is a real mineral but not 100% a natural stone since the color has been dyed and a different combination of minerals is used to create this stone. I believe in FULL DISCLOSURE when it comes to know what you are buying from me, and If you are ok with this, then I think you are going to love it as much as I do.
But it is important for me to make sure that you know Impression Jasper is a man made stone, made from different minerals and color dyed.

DISCLAIMER: I believe in a moral obligation for any seller to provide full information of the crystals and stones a customer is buying, if they have been treated or not. This is the reason why when you buy Turquoise (or any other Stone and crystal) from me, you will always have a full disclosure of any treatment or pertaining information that you need to know) The Turquoise Heishi beads used to make this necklace are Stabilized Turquoise. The Impression Jasper is a man-made Stone (made using real minerals) that has been color dyed.
ABOUT TURQUOISE TYPES AND TREATMENTS:
There are five “kinds” of turquoise as described by law:
Natural turquoise - turquoise that is so hard and beautiful that it is simply mined, cut, polished and set into a piece of jewelry or carved into a fetish or sculpture. Less than 3% of all the turquoise on the market worldwide is natural.
Stabilized turquoise - soft Turquoise or "chalk" turquoise that has been infused with a clear epoxy resin. The resin, under pressure, absorbs into the rock, which permanently hardens the rock and deepens the color. (Kind of like the way a sponge turns a deeper color when you get it wet.) Unlike the collectible natural turquoise which deepens in color over time by gradually absorbing oils from the skin as it is worn, the colors in stabilized turquoise are permanent. Most of the turquoise on the market is stabilized and should not cost as much as natural. Stabilized turquoise can be very beautiful, and is a good buy. (More than 97% of the turquoise on the market is stabilized.)
Treated turquoise - soft or "chalk" turquoise that is stabilized as described above, except that the epoxy resin is also dyed. Colors in treated turquoise have a tendency to look artificial. Prices should be much less than natural or stabilized.
Reconstituted turquoise - turquoise "chalk" that is very low grade and has been ground into powder, saturated with epoxy resin, dyed, and compressed into blocks or cakes to be cut into shapes for jewelry making. Prices should be most inexpensive.
Imitation turquoise - there is no turquoise in this category. Either there are stones like Howlite (white stone, very porous) dyed to look like turquoise or there is pure plastic (epoxy resin) that has been dyed to look like turquoise. It is a shame that these materials are set in silver and priced as if they had intrinsic value.
Unfortunately, treated, reconstituted and imitation turquoise can be made to look remarkably like collectible stones. Purchasing from a trusted source is important when it comes to Turquoise and jewelry made with it.

SELENITE: Selenite crystal ls are remarkably peaceful. They carry a very high vibration, and instill clarity of mind and a deep sense of inner peace. Selenite will assist you in opening your crown chakra and it can even assist you in contacting your Spiritual Guides and Angels. Selenite is one of the more powerful healing stones for the new age and spiritual work. It is excellent for meditation, and ensures a peaceful environment when stones are placed around the home. Selenite is one of the Essential Eleven crystals that everyone MUST have. It is known as an "emotional cleanser" for the mind, body, spirit and outer environment. It is an essential crystal in Feng Shui. It has one of the finest and highest spiritual vibrations and is often used at the Crown Chakra for meditation, angelic consciousness, channeling and the highest wisdom.
Selenite is the perfect crystal for bringing in the purifying white light into the body and healing the auric field. Selenites’ natural ability is to cleanse / purify and create flow (it is like a column of white light – think of ‘beam me up Scotty’ in Star Trek) that works right through the entire energy system, right down into the DNA, allowing it to restructure / regenerate cells thus working on tumor reduction and physical healing. Selenite brings mental clarity, clearing confusion and revealing the bigger picture behind any problem. A protective stone, Selenite shields a person or space from outside influences. Selenite can evoke protection from the angelic realm and also dispels negative energy.
The powerful energies of Selenite help one connect with one's guides, guardians, Christ Consciousness and Higher Self. Selenite can be held or placed around a person to facilitate such a connection. Selenite calms and soothes, bringing a deep peace and sense of tranquility. Use Selenite in a grid around your home or in the corners of a room to create a safe and peaceful space. Selenite is a crystallized form of Gypsum, which is used for good luck and protection. It can reverse the effects of “free radicals” to heal and repair on the cellular level. Selenite is associated with the spine and the skeletal system. Selenite can be used to mitigate problems with Mercury fillings in dental work. Selenite is also good for breast feeding.
Another wonderful property of Selenite is that it has the power to cleanse and clear other crystals and negative energies. You will never need to cleanse or recharge your Selenite crystal, as you need to do with many metaphysical stones.
TURQUOISE: Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue.
BLUE APATITE: Apatite is a dual-action stone, known for its positive use of personal power to achieve goals. It clears away confusion, apathy or negativity. Apatite enhances creativity and awakens the finer, inner self. Blue Apatite has an uplifting energy that raises spirits, encouraging a positive outlook and a hopeful attitude. Apatite helps eliminate over-activity, under-activity, blockages and congestion in all of the chakras. It is excellent for balancing yin-yang, and for raising kundalini energy. Blue Apatite stimulates the Third Eye and theThroat Chakras.
LAPIS LAZULI: Lapis Lazuli is a deep blue crystal flecked with white and gold. It is a highly prized gemstone. Lapis Lazuli is thought to stimulate the higher levels of the mind encouraging clarity and objectivity. It is also believed to allow the release of stress bringing deep inner peace. Lapis Lazuli is said to facilitate self-knowledge and self-expression and, when used in meditation, to enhance psychic ability and spiritual insight.
Lapis Lazuli eliminates internalized emotional baggage that often makes us ill, brings happiness in love, helps our heart and mind work together, brings harmony, reveals our inner truth, assists with self acceptance
