Take your jewelry to the next level with these yummy 6mm round, purple semi-precious amethyst beads. The color is a medium-dark consistent purple with minor color zoning. You'll also see typical fracturing. (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.
If you don't need a full strand, you can buy these in packs of 10 beads.
