These genuine Sunstone beads are:
Quantity: one 7.5″ strand (approx 15 beads)
Shape: Step cut faceted nuggets
Quality: I’m going to have to call this Sunstone an A- grade – I absolutely love high quality Sunstone, and although these are nice, they aren’t what I usually find. These are still sparkly sunstone, but they are more translucent than they are transparent, and as you can see in the images they have some visible inclusions & more swirly interior than the super clear ones. Also, these have more of a peachy color than a vibrant orange, but they are still sparkly, beautifully cut faceted nuggets!
Sunstone is such a fun stone. It’s sparkle is called aventuresence, and is due to metal inclusions in the stone. I knew a gem dealer once who would tell a fable about how the sparkle in the sunstone is actually the spectacular beauty of the sun captured in the stone.
The stones in the image are the stones you will receive.
