We love pyrite in natural bronze, but it’s just as delicious in silver. One of the newest stories in the bead industry is the renaissance the stone hematite is having; It is being used as the base bead for a coating of pyrite in assorted metallic coatings. Manufacturers start with a hematite bead and give it a rich, 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. Imported from China. See how we used this bead in Strong Point, a 5 wrap ladder bracelet.
