These genuine Pietersite beads are:
Quantity: one 15.5″ strand (about 40 beads)
Shape: Round coin disc beads
Quality: These Pietersite beads are excellent, the depth of detail in the stone is amazing. I love pietersite and have been plagued in the past with stones that are substandard in quality – these are not those beads. Although you may find a slightly wavy surface on a few of these guys – overall they are smooth, multicolor, glossy, well drilled, and have bits of chatoyancy here and there (it’s difficult to maximize in a 10mm bead). Regardless, this is a great lot of beads – I’d be happy to keep ’em! 😉
Pietersite is also known as Eagle’s Eye, and Wonderstone or Wonder Stone for it’s amazing color & chatoyancy.
