Lovely mixed colours of Unakite beads, for jewellers and beaders.
Wonderful Unakite beads, cut from a lovely pink and green stone formed of Epidote, pink Feldspar, and clear or white Quartz.
You may notice the stone has some fairly strong tones, and makes a nice statement piece.
For a stand out look, you might want to try and contrast it against black beads, or silver findings; however, when paired with some darker antiqued bronze or brass findings it can be quite subtle, too. A very interesting stone, I’m sure you’ll agree!
These stones are considered semi precious and are quite reasonably priced, considering the stones current popularity amongst jewellers – especially beaders.
These beads are not freeforms, but they are also not calibrated beads – as such, an 8MM strand may contain beads that are 7.5MM or 8.5MM – the sizes may vary a little. Obviously, this doesn’t apply to the chip beads – these are random sizes!
You may be interested in just how many of these beads fit on each strand we sell!
