red agateJust perfect for your Halloween creations -- these Red Agate Evil Eye beads are of stone that was formed from layers of silica from volcanic cavities. 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.

vaseIt was love at first sight when we saw this natural gemstone pendant with its rough, bone-like quality and the delicious rich purple color. It paired so perfectly with the natural amethyst chips, pink crystal beads, and the delicate light brown hishi beads on the back edges.There are even a couple of tiny turquoise chip beads thrown in for good measure. Just a beautiful piece -- hard to translate via photographs, but believe us, this one is truly special.
