The deep-red garnet pebble beads on this continuous strand feature a deep red color and a smooth, irregular shape that catches the light. Use the beads together to create a texture-rich necklace or bracelet, stack a few pebbles on a head pin for a simple drop or dangle, or use the beads individually and combine them with other stone or metal beads and pearls in custom necklace, bracelet and earring designs. Garnet is the birthstone for January.
Traditional red garnet derives its deep color from iron and magnesium. Garnets are actually a family of closely related stones. The most common color is red; but garnets are also found in green, orange, pink and blue. Garnet exhibits few inclusions, and those that are present tend to be rounded, seedlike crystals with irregular edges.
Each package contains one temporarily strung 35"–36" strand.
