Prices Slashed on Oversized Blue Chalcedony

I purchased my blue chalcedony beads from a new supplier who told me the size tolerance would be .5mm. Meaning that if I order 6mm beads, the size should be around 6mm to 6.5mm and no more. But I received many strands with beads up to 6.95mm.

When I told the supplier, he was apologetic and offered to reduce the cost of the beads, which I happily accepted. I am passing that discount on to you for all the bead strands that are over 6.5mm.

I also learned that he doesn't wax his beads, which is standard practice in the bead industry. The manufacturers polish the beads with diamond powder about four or fives times and then finish with wax as a final polish. Cracks in stones stop light passing through the bead, so the wax fills the gaps and allows the light to continue through the bead and it makes the beads shiny.

This manufacturer polishes with diamond powder seven times! The shine from such polishing is superior to that of waxed beads. But it's more labor and therefore higher cost. Again, we all know that you get what you pay for.

So now's your chance to get your hands on some true blue chalcedony at almost half the price. Once they're gone, they're gone forever. All grades have two size variations. Just click on the size next to the price to choose the large, discounted variation.

I mentioned in my newsletter that I was getting amethyst in tomorrow. It will take me a few days to photograph and list the new beads. If you want me to hold your order until the new stock is in, just leave a comment on your order. Then let me know when you place your final order that I can ship. I'll ship the orders together and refund the shipping difference.

Me too! This is the nicest pure chalcedony I’ve ever seen. And the drill holes are so clean and consistent.
