This Rough Tourmaline Nugget Beads strand is:
Quantity: one 7″ strand (about 45+ beads)
Shape: Natural rough nugget chunk shape
Size: about 2x5mm up to 4x10mm
Quality: I’m going to have to call this Rough Tourmaline Nugget Beads strand an A grade. Although rough in shape, these guys have a glossy finish & some lovely colors. Granted, as you can see in the image, there are a lot of dark colors, but some of those dark colors are quite blue which is rare for tourmaline. ANyway, these strands are truly a mix of stone color and quality – I found some genuine mineral chunks on the strands, and also some very chippy bits – there are some very dark opaque colors and some vibrant colors as well – so if you are looking for a good mix, you’ve found it!
The beads in the image are the beads you will receive.
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.
