These Quality Tourmaline Beads are:
Quantity: About 90+ beads (one 14″ strand)
Shape: Faceted Square Rectangle Shape
Quality: Holy Mackerel! These are awesome Quality Tourmaline Beads! I’m going to call them AA, and the only issue that I am able to find with these guys is the cut. They are not perfectly, uniformly cut. Some are more square, some more rectangle, some perfectly faceted, some not so much. At the same time – the color and quality of the stone is AMAZING!!
I’m shocked at these little guys! They are SO clean & SO rich in color I am truly surprised. Usually you find short strands with material this nice, but these guys were assembled into extra-long 14″ strands of uneven beauty (see the conundrum?). Anyway, these have outrageous color, good translucence/transparency, and a teeny size. Truly it’s okay if you don’t want them – I’m more than happy to keep them to myself!!
Like it or not, when you tell people it’s genuine Tourmaline (just like with aquamarine), their eyebrows will go up & they will have another look – they can’t help it.
