This amazonite drop bead is vertically half-drilled and features pale blue-green colors with a mostly pale matrix. The ocean-like color of amazonite makes it an ideal choice for beach-themed necklace and earring designs. This bead looks great when used alone or when paired with silver findings or complementary-color beads in more complex designs. Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the drop on a peg finding.
Amazonite is a form of microcline feldspar and displays a lightly marbled yellow-green to blue-green color. It is generally opaque, and is a relatively soft stone that should be handled with care.
