This strand of Genuine Labradorite beads has:
Quantity: about ninety (64+) beads (one 9″ strand)
Shape: Faceted button rondelle wheel shape
Quality: These Labradorites are going to have to have a grade AAA, at least. Although they are not perfect, they are really nice beads. They are well faceted, but not incredibly well-cut (which is weird). They are those thick, closer to wheels than to discs or other chippy rondelles but they are not evenly shaped. You will be able to use these & actually see them in a design! They are generally translucent with some of those beautiful velvety stones on the strand as well. I tried to assess the amount of flash & although I didn’t count (like I sometimes do) it seems that all of the stones flash. It might take a bit of looking into them, but it seems that they all do! I would like to say that every stone will flash (because I think they will) but it was hard to tell with some of the stones – some don’t want to give it up easily, even though the flash is there. Anyway, a really nice, flashy strand that is rich & luxurious in color & faceting!
The beads in the image are the beads you’ll receive.
Labradorite has its very own cult following, those who just can’t get enough of that mysterious flash of labradorescence.
