These Quality Amethyst Beads are:
Quantity: One 8″ strand (about 52 beads)
Shape: Brilliant micro faceted rondelles disc beads
Quality: These Quality Amethyst Beads are about a grade A to AA. I’m calling it that because the color is light purple and just what you’d expect for Amethyst. Also because the faceting is brilliant, and the stones are mostly clean although there are some more translucent than transparent stones on the strand (this can be seen in the image).
The cut is wonderful and the faceting is shockingly sparkly. This is because they were hand cut in Germany (where my father & grandfather learned to cut stones), where the cutting is considered to be world class. They are wonderful beads. And if you’re the type who can really appreciate an incredible, natural, untreated genuine stone – these are for you. Totally. If you’re looking for gemstones to string – you’ve found them – these are fancy beautiful gems with holes in them!
The beads in the image are the beads you will receive.
