Agate is named after the Achates River (now known as the Dirillo River) on the island of Sicily, Italy, whose upper waters were an ancient source of this gemstone. 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.

These gorgeous African beads are handcrafted of golden topaz glass. (Color varies as shown.) There are 35 barrel-shaped beads on a 27" cord. Each bead is approx. 16 x 12 mm. It's difficult to capture the true luminosity of these lovely beads; they would make a beautiful necklace all on their own, or paired with other exotic gemstones and/or pendant.
