These genuine Carnelian rectangle beads have:
Quantity: About 19+ beads (14″ approx)
Shape: Faceted chunky rectangle
Size: 16-21mm (slightly graduated)
Quality: I’m going to have to call these carnelian rectangle beads about a B+ quality, although it could be conservative. The color is lovely, but as you can see in the image, the stone is not gem-perfect (which is often a good thing!). It has beautiful bands of color sprinkled through, and there are beads that have marks on them (I don’t know how to describe them other than it’s clearly the edge of the rock, which I think is cool, but some people think is a mar on the surface – I think it makes it look natural). The color is rich and deep, the faceting is good. Check the images to be sure you can appreciate what these beads have to offer – they’re cool!
The beads in the image are the beads you will receive.
HOLY MACKEREL!! I just learned that Carnelian can be used to guard against poverty, in addition to supporting energy and providing a sense of humor. Excuse me, I’ve got to go fill my pockets, make some earrings and a couple of bracelets, necklaces…..
