This strand of quality Peridot beads is:
Quantity: One 9″ Strand (about 110 beads)
Shape: Faceted 3-D Briolettes
Quality: I’m going to call these quality Peridot beads an AAA grade. The color is wonderful, light, fresh, and bursting with spring! These are exceptional strands. Although there is a tiny bit of variation, they are generally calibrated strands, which means that the stones have been matched for size, cut, & color. This generally warrants a higher price, since the stones are consistent & well matched. In addition, these are some of the cleanest peridot I’ve seen in years. Out of the 110+ beads on each strand, I found only 2-3 that had some kind of visible inclusion or mark. If you need something of exceptional quality – you’ve just found it!
P.S. I had to include the picture of the peridot with the citrine because it looked so springy to me!
