These Silver-plated Pyrite beads are so perfect for the jewelry we are all making today. There is real copper in the plating which has been expertly done in India. Plated pyrite in all the metals is a hot product in the bead market. 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. We do our best to carry consistent size, but each shipment can vary.
Sold in 13 inch strands. Temporarily strung.
