These gold-plated Pyrite beads are so perfect for the jewelry we are all making today. For much less than the cost of Vermeil or real gold, you can have the look for today's fabulous jewelry styles. Vermeil often dulls and rubs off, but the pyrite plated with a metal finish seems to really last. With gold prices skyrocketing these days, we felt these are a true gem of a find! Underneath the plating is natural pyrite. Made in India. Nature gifts us with diversity, please expect variations. Our micro-faceted gems have machine drilled holes which are consistent but are still very fine. For gem knotting, we recommend using a Size 12 Needle with Superlon D or KO doubled. For macramé, Micro C-Lon or Tuff #1 will fit most of the stones single with the end of the thread used as a self-needle.
Sold in 13 inch strands. Temporarily strung.
