African Turquoise Tumblestones (Jasper)

African Turquoise tumblestones, in mixed sizes – typically measuring between 15 and 30MM approximately.

These stones are unusual! They are not actually a form of Turquoise at all – but a form of Jasper mined in Africa!

African Turquoise is merely a trade name for these stones, given due to the fact they do look quite a lot like Turquoise. They are harder than Turquoise, which is handy for tumblestones.

These are nice green and blue stones, typical of Turquoise. They do have a large amount of black, grey, and brown matrix stone around them.

We sell a range of packet sizes – from a single stone to a larger packet containing ten tumblestones

What are tumblestones?

Tumblestones are stones that have been put in spinning barrels with an abrasive compound for weeks or months. This slowly rounds off the rough rock and corners – the stones are then cleaned, and placed with a less abrasive grit. This happens several times until the stones are placed into a barrel with a polishing compound for their final polish.
