This week I posted several new beads that are very nice quality and some of the stones are maybe a little different from what I usually carry. Check out the slide show to see this week’s finds.
Here are some of the highlights:
- You’ll notice two different types of pink botswana agate in both faceted ovals (grade A) and smooth rounds. Pink Botswana agate sports a beautiful soft pink color with shades of gray and white. You find some of the impressive banding that is usually seen in this stone. Chunky yellow botswana agate nuggets are available too!
- The blue quartz beads are a must see. Staring at them is like trying to look into the bottom of the blue waters of the Carribbean. These beads are one of my personal favorites.
- I’ve brought back the tourmaline colored agate in a unique faceted coin shape. Most coin shaped beads are tapered at the sides. These are actually wider and have a groove that travels around the bead. I think they’d be great for wire wrapping.
- The mixed quartz gemstones are really special and sport rose quartz, green rutilated quartz, and amethyst and rock crystal. Hurry, these are going fast!
- Indian agate is a variety of fancy jasper. Here you’ll find beautiful shades of red, lavender, and rose. A very nice change from the darker green shades commonly seen in fancy jasper.
- Aquamarine and green garnet are old favorites that are back, but this time in the smaller 4mm and 6mm sizes, respectively.
I had fun selecting these beads for you. I hope you enjoy them!Copyright 2012 Beads and Honey – All text and images.
