This strand of quality Aquamarine beads has:
Quantity: Sixty (60+) beads, 12″ strand
Shape: Faceted button rondelle beads
Quality: I’ve got to call this quality Aquamarine a grade AAA, it’s just awesome. I really love a good looking rondelle, but I am so very picky! They need to be thick like a tire for me to approve, and these Aquamarine certainly fit! These are incredibly clear and sparkling, although as you know, with Aquamarine beads you tend to trade color for clarity, and these are no exception. This aquamarine strand is so incredibly transparent that there are only a couple of stones on the strand that have even a slight translucence to them.
At the same time, there are about three stones that have old-fashioned inclusions in them (to me an old-fashioned inclusion is a black spot that is visible), although only one of them is obvious, the others I had to look for. As you can see in the image, there is just a hint of blue to some of these aquamarine, they are overwhelmingly white. The faceting is crisp and clean & the cut is fantastic, thick, and relatively regular although there are some variations in thickness to the strand. Overall, a really great strand of Aquamarine, that is often difficult to find!
The stones in the image are the stones you will receive.
