This strand of genuine Moonstone beads is:
Quantity: One hundred and ten (105+) briolettes (about 14″ long)
Shape: Faceted Heart Briolette Drops
Size: 4x4mm up to 6x6mm
Quality: I’m going to have to call these moonstone beads about an AAA grade. These beads are cut from amazing material – they have that ethereal blue flash and are really quite transparent (there are some interior details as you can see in the image). There is little not to love about these little beauties, they are nicely faceted, and the only criticism I can muster is that they are not perfectly cut. The size is not precise & some of them are a bit uneven & might not be perfectly finished, but the drilling looks pretty good (i.e. none of them are sideways on the strand). Also, there is no need to have that sinking feeling of wondering how many stones will flash, because we inspected them closely (i.e. I looked at every single bead), and there are seven that don’t appear to flash, other than that – every single stone has beautiful blue phenomena. This is a strand of Moonstone Briolettes that is amazing – it is incredibly transparent with amazing flash – a truly gemmy strand!
You will receive one of the stands down in the image (unless you buy both :).
Moonstone is an alternate birthstone for June, and Hindu lore says that the radiant shimmer of moonstone is from captured moonbeams in the stone. Dreamy, eh?
