This strand of genuine Garnet beads has:
Quantity: About eighty (80+) beads (one 8″ strand)
Shape: Flat Heart Briolette Drop Shape
Size: about 5mm
Quality: I’m going to have to call this garnet an A grade. The quality of this is really difficult for me. They are a lovely rhodolite, pinkish hue and are very transparent, except for the inclusions you can see in them when you look. At the same time, they have a perfect, glossy flashy flat face, except for the marks you can see from the inclusions that reach the surface. Many (most) of them have those perfect flat sides and face, but then you can see that at the right angle not all of them do. At the same time, because of the cut, you can see their color quite nicely because they are a pretty good quality – it’s maddening! But this is the reality of these guys, so I want to be sure you know what you’ll be getting – these beautiful, pinkish-red garnet stones with a couple of issues close up (kinda like all of us, eh?).
The beads in the image are the beads you will receive.
