I bought the large silver bead with turquoise inlay when I was a back packer in Nepal in the early 90’s. It was when I first fell in love with turquoise and coral. The shopping in Katmandu back then was amazing. I was broke and could buy very little but I do remember when I saw these beads, I had to have them. In all my years of bead shopping I have never seen anything like them again. I have been waiting for the right time and I guess it is now. The labradorite came in darker then I have seen before. The darkness of it reminded me of a storm so it is called Dark and Stormy. It also includes carnelian, amethyst, turquoise, pyrite and one crystal bead. It measures 7 inches and is strung on a jewelers elastic.
