The round amethyst beads in this strand feature a range of medium- to dark-purple colors, ideal for necklace and bracelet designs using same-size beads or for creating a graduated strand using a range of available sizes. This bead makes an eye-catching separator between larger stone or metal beads and is ideal for creating drop and dangle components for earrings and pendant designs. Individual beads may be included; inclusions contribute to the unique presentation of each 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.
Ready to string; package contains one temporarily strung 15"–16" strand.
