All things greeny-blue

by Julia Aufenast November 23, 2015

What’s the collective noun for beads? A bundle? A clutch? Or…maybe something a little more esoteric? A sweetshop? Well, whatever it is, I am listing it. So many different ones to choose from, many of Chrysoprase rough rondelle, matt finishthem in that fantastic and unusual silky matt finish. First up is all things greeny-blue. My personal favourites are these fantastic rough chrysoprase rondelles (right). And I mean rough; with bits of matrix, crevasses and druzy-filled gaps. They really are fantastic. With a matt finish that accentuates the patterning on the stone, I can see these looking great with some hammered silver spacers, so unusual and distincJoopy Gems Chrysoprase rondelle 7-8mm matt finishtive. These are quite large, around 12-17mm and the strings are vaguely graduated so that they are smaller at the ends and larger in the middle. Also in chrysoprase I have some smaller, slightly more regular rondelles, 7-8mm in both matt and gloss finish. These are $45 for the matt option and $30 for the gloss.

Moving into a slJoopy Gems Amazonite beads 13-14mm roundightly more aqua colour scheme I have amazonite round beads, again with a lovely silky matt finish. I can’t resist the sea-green shade of this stone, similar to turquoise, but with distinctive white markings. These are the most beautiful soft colour, highlighted by the matt finish, and I have them in a 7-8mm and a 13-14mm (pictured right), the smaller ones $25 per strand and the larger ones $45.

Turquoise Joopy gems Turquoise beads 9-10mm matt finishis always very popular and this is African material, speckled with dark matrix, again in the matt finish that highlights the patterns on the stone and gives a fantastic organic look and feel. I have these in a 7-8mm at $25 and a 9-10mm round at $30.

Finally I have some chrysocolla rondelles. Chrysocolla-in-chalcedony, to give it its full name takes its name from the mineral chrysocolla, and it is that that gives it its blue colour. The Joopy Gems Chrysocolla rondelle 7-8mm beads AB grade matt finishmaterial I have is opaque and looks as though it is mixed with other minerals. I have an AB grade at $37 per strand, which is broadly bluish-green and a B grade (pictured right) at $20 per strand, which, in my opinion is more beautiful still, with an array of different colours mottling the beads. I have both of these in a matt 7-8mm rondelle.

Look out for more beads over the next few days!
