These are carnelian beads with a fantastic, lustrous matt finish. The shape is a slightly curved drop, around 10-12mm across the widest part of the bead. There is a mix of colours per strand, ranging from whites, to yellows, to orange, reds, and russet-brown. The matt finish really accentuates the characteristic fascinating banding of this material, and the feel is so soft and silky, just amazing! These stones are natural and untreated. Selection of strand is random.
