Here you can buy a 10 pack of these 6mm round, semi-precious amethyst beads. I have two variations: medium color with typical color zoning; medium-dark with consistent coloring. (Tip for buying: if you're looking at amethyst beads and they're inexpensive without fracturing, they're synthetic.)
The drill holes in these beads are dimpled, like a little volcano crater. I see this all the time in amethyst and garnet. This means the beads have a slightly flat side. You can see from the picture that the beads sit closer to each other than they would if the beads were fully round.
Save money by buying a full strand.
