The faceted roundel amethyst beads in this strand reflect light and draw the eye, making them an ideal choice for necklace and bracelet designs. String the beads on their own or combine them with other gemstone and metal beads to create more complex pendant, bracelet and earring designs; roundel beads make great spacers. Complete the designs with silver or yellow-gold findings to highlight the color of the bead.
Amethyst is the best known and most valuable form of quartz. The light-to-dark purple color of natural amethyst is caused by iron or manganese compound impurities in the mineral and can range from a watercolor pale pink to a dark, almost opaque, purple.
Each package contains one temporarily strung 15"–16" strand.
