The smooth round fluorite beads in this strand range in color from crystal clear to jewel-tone purple and green—round beads are a staple of strung designs and look good when simply strung on their own or used individually as separators or accents. Separate the beads by color and use them to create a delicate strung color-blocked necklace or combine them with other gemstone and metal beads to create more complex pendant, bracelet and earring designs.
This unusual mineral presents drastically different colors depending on the source of the light playing on the stone. Under a cool light spectrum, it leans toward the blue shades; under a warmer spectrum, the color appears much more purplish. Because of this ever-changing look, this stone is a great favorite among jewelry makers and their customers; however, the stone is relatively soft and requires careful handling.
Ready to string, this package contains one temporarily strung 15"–16" strand.
