These strands of genuine Garnet beads have:
Quantity: About 55+ beads (one 8″ strand)
Shape: Faceted button rondelle shape
Quality: I’m going to call this garnet about an AA. This garnet is amazing in cut, they are consistent in size, generally consistent in thickness (not calibrated but still good), and beautifully faceted. These are nice and thick so you can actually see the stone (i.e. not just a chippy sliver kind of thing). These beads look beautiful, and the color is rich and bright. The size is great (a solid 5-6mm), and I’m so happy to have a beautiful bright rich red color of garnet bead again!
