One of the newest stories in the bead industry is the renaissance hematite is having right now with gorgeous coatings. Bead makers have taken a stone that has been languishing and it brought it back to life, in this case with a rich, copper pyrite coating. There are all levels of quality on the market; we took our time finding a source that we feel meets our tough standards. See how we used it in Strong Point, a 5 wrap ladder project. Imported from China. Did you know we also have this bead in Silvered Hematite and Golden Hematite?
Strands measure 15-½ inches and have approximately 168-170 beads. Sold by the strand.
