Once Upon a Time- Cube

Once Upon a Time- Cube

6mm Turritella Cube
Unit: strand

A very, very long time ago, tiny freshwater snails lived in the rivers and lakes of Wyoming during the Eocene Epoch (33-35 million years to be exact). One day, a big flood came and all that ancient life got trapped in stone forever...but, not the end! Today that fossil stone is being made into beads and if you look very closely, you can see the tightly coiled mollusk shell those snails called home. Holes are machine drilled so laddering with Tuff Cord #3 or C-Lon is a breeze. Beads are cubes but expect wide variations in shape, color and size, due to the level of difficulty creating a cubed bead.

Sold on 8 inch strands. Approximately 30-32 beads per strand. Imported by Dakota Stones.
