Bead of the Week

fossil 2USE CODE SAVE20 FOR 20% OFF THIS AND ANYTHING ELSE IN THE SHOP --

Orthoceras ("straight horn") is a genus of a now-extinct nautiloid cephalopod -- a once living, shell like organism. Each stone is polished to better reveal their lovely black and grey and off-white hues, and the vertebrae structure is clear as shown in the photos.
This set is predrilled (front to back) and ready for stringing into a matched necklace/earring set, or for use separately. The largest stone is approx. 39 x 24 mm., with an approx. 2 mm. hole. The two smaller ones are slightly different in size -- the smallest at approx. 34 x 14 mm., the larger at approx. 40 x 15 mm. The hole in this latter pendant (40 x 15 mm. one) is slightly chipped. Each of the smaller pendants has an approx. 1 mm. hole.

Peru Opal 6Peruvian opals are rare, and the authentic ones come from only one area: the Andes in Peru. This particular strand has 47 beads in it, ranging from 10 - 15 mm. The color reminds one of the Carribean Sea -- translucent blue -- sometimes with soft brown accents. In healing folklore, this stone is believed to aid in quieting the mind, for meditation or sleep. You can find this very special item at our Etsy.com store: https://www.etsy.com/listing/129215044/peruvian-opal-beads
