TOUREG-Lava Men's Bracelet with Tibetan Agate, Bauxite Trade Beads and Iron Pyrite


The Toureg people are a Berber people with a traditionally nomadic lifestyle. They are the principal inhabitants of Saharan North Africa. So you see the connection?
Do you know an urban nomad? Have you dreamed of the African Sahara...well anyway...you might like this bracelet. The fire of the lava beads are punctuated with African Bauxite Trade beads which are pretty old. More fire with the Iron Pyrite rough, raw nuggets (Fool's Gold). It's all about the heat on this bracelet for nomadic men or women. It's on a strong stretch cord to fit any size, but you can have it fitted to size. Convo me with your wrist measurement if you'd like a fitted gift with a clasp closure.

IRON PYRITE_The resemblance of pyrite to gold has made it a traditional symbol for money and good luck. It's sunny golden color associates it with the sun, and with fortification and strengthening of the mind. The name comes from the Greek word meaning "a stone which strikes fire".
LAVA-Lava rock is the physical embodiment of fire. It started as molten lava and formed into rock.
It is the only stone that is a physical form of what was once solely fire.

BAUXITE TRADE BEADS- Bauxite is a kind of aluminum ore and is a beautiful dark rusty chestnut color. These wonderful old beads are cut, carved, polished and drilled by hand in Africa. Most of the production of bauxite beads today is in Ghana, African, in a small village called Akyem Abompe. It is a unique center of bead production where practically each family is maintaining themselves through manufacture of beads. The patina of bauxite beads is warm and earthy and the most beautiful are said to be the ones which have been worn for a while and have absorbed natural human oil and sweat.
