The multi-color amber pebble beads on this strand feature colors that range from transparent, pale yellow to deep golden to dark coffee brown. Each bead has an irregular shape that provides visual depth and variety. 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.
Amber, an organic gem, forms from the hardened, fossilized sap or resin of coniferous trees. Amber often contains bubbles and inclusions resulting from air pockets and small plant or animal fragments becoming encapsulated in the sap prior to fossilization. Amber is more than a million years old and has been prized for centuries as a gemstone as well as an ingredient in perfumes and a healing agent in folk remedies. Though its transparency and color varies, the most common colors are orange, yellow and brown.
Each package contains one temporarily strung 16" strand.
Beads per strand: 137 (approx.; bead sizes vary slightly).
