This Quality Aquamarine Round Beads strand is:
Quantity: about 25 beads (one 7″ strand)
Shape: Faceted round sphere ball beads
Quality: I’ve got a weakness for Aquamarine. I just love it so very much – it’s not my birthstone, I just love it! These Quality Aquamarine Round Beads, in particular, is really something special. The color is slightly variegated & so is the clarity of the strand. Some of the beads on the strand are incredibly transparent and some are opaque, some are a light blue color and some are very light – it’s a true mix on the strand. Again, spheres are more difficult to find in beads (for quality gemstones) because the size of the rough must be much larger to cut a sphere than to cut a button. You can take all sorts of skinny, odd-shaped pieces to make a button, but you need a large chunk to make a sphere – and to find many high quality chunks makes spheres a bit more expensive, and always extravagant!
The stones in the image are the stones you’ll receive.
Like it or not, when you tell people it’s genuine aquamarine, their eyebrows will go up & they will have another look – they can’t help it.
