This rare stone is only found on one place in the world - Dominican Republic. We constantly struggle with our digital camera trying to get the color patterns and shades of this rare stone. Either the color and patterns wash out or the color looks too blue according to what we see with our own eyes. We usually end up shooting these in partial sun (photo appears a bit gray) but the pattern and color seem to come out much better where the full sun photos get washed out.
Gorgeous - these are rare, genuine, natural & are not dyed. Now is your chance to buy a strand of these very expensive larger rondelle beads. Price is for a ~15-3/4" strand of these larger fab HAND CUT freeform rondelle beads from our available lots as shown in the photo. This is actually an ~18 7/8" necklace that includes a sterling silver extender chain (with ~9mm rondelle Larimar bead) and lobster clasp so you can just buy this and wear as a necklace or cut the strand to use the beads individually in your designs - like we often do as we can create a lot of designs from one strand.
All of these beads are in beautiful hand cut freeform rondelle shape & color with some having gray or brown matrix inclusions which is normal. If there is more than one photo of the rondelles it is only to show you different angles of the same beads. We have a few of these strands all very similar in quality & color and pretty close in graduated sizes as well. One of the photos does a random size comparison for you from the largest center beads ... a bead or two on either side of the largest beads ... on up to the smallest (still larger) beads so you can get a sense of their sizes!
Because these are all hand cut they will vary in width and even roundness to their freeform rondelle shape. The beads in all our sets have a hole size that may be 0.35mm to 0.60mm range which will work with thin wire. If you are wishing to put a very thin chain or larger wire through these beads you need to pay attention to the approximate hole sizes in the beads. A bead reamer is a perfect solution if you need to enlarge the hand cut hole(s). There is plenty of info on the internet on where to get a reamer and how to use it. All monitors vary so this adds to the problem with accuracy of the beads you are looking at. So, what we see on our monitor is the most accurate we can get. THESE PHOTOs ARE ENLARGED TO SHOW DETAIL.
