The citrine pebble beads on this continuous strand feature a transparent, pale yellow color, each with a smooth, irregular shape that catches the light. Create a texture-rich necklace or bracelet with multiple beads or stack a few on a head pin for a simple drop or dangle. Combine the beads with other stone or metal beads to produce custom necklace, bracelet and earring designs.
Citrine, although often mistakenly referred to as topaz, belongs to the quartz family. The yellow color of this gemstone is due to the presence of iron in the trigonal crystal structure. Named for its bright citrus color, citrine can present a range of yellow hues, from pale yellow to deep brownish gold. Though gemstone-quality stones are rare, Rio Grande offers the highest quality citrine available. According to folklore, citrine conveys the power of the sun.
Each package contains one temporarily strung 35”–36" strand.
