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.

Garnet NecklaceGarnets are a type of mineral-based gemstone that are commonly red, but can come in a variety of colors, depending on the specific chemical makeup of the type.  They can be found in brownish-red tones, red with a hint of violet, orange to reddish brown, and even green, yellow and brown.  They generally have a deep, rich luster, and are associated with emotional healing and spirituality.  This piece from 5th Element Yoga shows just one of the many ways garnets can be used to create beautiful and meaningful pieces.  The garnet is the birthstone for January, and specifically for Aquarians.
