Chrysocolla is one of my favourite materials, so varied, made up of a variety of different minerals. These flat, freeform but roughly oval beads at between 30-40mm are large enough to see all this variety. They are amazing! They look like a map of the world, or of a river delta. So interesting and fascinating. These are beads, drilled vertically through the centre of the bead. However, I think that they could also look amazing set in a window or even a bezel setting.
