Vesuvianite Gem Cubes
6-7mm Faceted Cubes IHD: 0.55mm
Originally found embedded in lava at the foot of Mount Vesuvius in Italy, this gemstone captures shades of green that must have been growing all around Pompei before the volcano erupted. Each facet of each bead is hand cut in India by artisan stone cutters and they are natural, undyed gemstones.
Gem cube holes are hand-drilled. The holes are larger on one side of the cube than the other. Sizes #2-4 Griffin will it fit and hold a knot. 24G Wire will also fit, and if you want to ladder, we recommend KO Thread and a Size 12 English Beading Needle.
