This tube-shaped bead is created from natural white agate. Its polished surface and linear design make it an ideal choice for both vintage and contemporary necklace and bracelet designs. String several beads together to create a bold, monochromatic effect, or alternate tube beads with other bead designs to create a texture-rich strand.
Agate is a form of chalcedony that occurs in nodular masses, in rocks such as volcanic lavas. Inside, agate reveals a wide variety of colors and patterns and distinct banding that distinguishes it from other types of chalcedony. Individual agates are named according to their color or their source location. Each bead is unique: veining color, pattern and density will vary.
• Bead sizes and hole sizes are approximate and may vary slightly from bead to bead.
