What a mesmerizing stone! Mined in Hubei, China, this manmade semi-precious bead has so much going for it. Molded from natural jasper, the beads are created and dyed to look like turquoise. Unlike many of the other Double-Drilled Stone Beads, Aqua Impression Jasper is a larger bead with bigger bead holes. We were actually able to string .5mm leather through the holes. Sweet! It might be a shame to cover their lovely surfaces completely with beadweaving like in the Carrier Bead Bracelet, but some bead embellishment could look fantastic. Because they are originally made from natural stones, expect variations in color, shape, and size. We do not recommend getting these beads wet or exposing to prolonged sunlight.
Sold by the 8 inch strand approximately 20 beads.
