This genuine Kyanite beads strand is:
Quantity: one 8″ strand (about 86+ beads)
Shape: Faceted 3D teardrop briolette drop shape
Size: Graduated from 3x4mm up to 5.5x8mm
Quality: I’m going to have to call this Kyanite an AA grade. These are exceptional beads. Although you can see some striation in the beads (like threads almost, like the directionality you can see in most kyanite), that is about all I can find about them that is less than perfect.
There is a bit of variation in some of the stones as you often see in Kyanite, with part being a bit more saturated than another. But they are bright, vibrant, sparkly beads. They have a great cut in a lovely shape (I love the teardrops) with an amazing color of blue and impressive clarity. It is hard to find Kyanite that is translucent and these are definitely they! They are really incredible beads!
The beads in the image are the beads you will receive.
