Each strand offered here has 16 round faceted beads, with colors ranging from red to amber, as shown. Each bead is approx. 10 mm. with an approx. 2 mm. hole. Each strand is $10, but for a limited time, take 10% off with the code HALLOWEEN at checkout.

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 store:
