Joopy Gems Chrysocolla beads, 7-8mm gloss finish Joopy Gems Chrysocolla beads, 7-8mm gloss finish Joopy Gems Chrysocolla beads, 7-8mm gloss finish

It’s not the most well-known gemstone, but Chrysocolla is endlessly fascinating, with its patterning and array of different colours. It’s the copper in it that is responsible for the vivid blue-green colours and it often combines with other copper-bearing minerals which give it its unique mix of colours and characteristic mottled patterns, such as turquoise, blue azurite and malachite. Just listed I have these gloss finish 7-8mm rondelle beads, at $20 per strand. These are B grade, and I think that the range of colours, textures and patterns on these stones are just amazing.Joopy Gems Chrysocolla rondelle beads, matte finish, 7-8mm I also have these in a matte finish, same size, which are equally multi-coloured, but with an amazing soft and silky finish (see left). These are also $20 per strand. Joopy Gems Chrysocolla rondelle beads, AB grade, 7-8mm, matte finishAnd finally, some AB grade beads, which are much more uniform in terms of colour leaning firmly towards the blue-green end of the spectrum, again same size. These are also matte finish, and these are $37 per strand. I can see these looking great with some chunky silver accents – let your creativity go wild! Beads are a  relatively new venture for me, and all of the ones I have are funky and wonderful – to check out the full range, click here. To shop check out Chrysocolla beads click here.

Now called ‘fancy blacks’, they began their popularity streak when designers started […]

A few years ago I started seeing Super 7 at gemstone fairs. I hadn’t seen it before and I first saw it on the stand of a really fantastic Brazilian gemstone supplier who always has the most sublime quality tourmaline and rutile. Gorgeous clear crystal with bronze coloured needles shot through with smears of bright […]
