I've broken a strand of the larger 6mm chalcedony beads to create this 10 pack. The beads are a pale periwinkle blue and are semi-opaque to semi-transparent. This a grade is a little lighter and has a bit more inconsistency in color saturation and transparency and but more brown calcite than higher grades.
Most of the beads I've bought are waxed, which is a standard treatment that enhances the polish of the beads. These beads are not waxed, which means the beads had to go through two more rounds of polishing with diamond powder than most manufacturers perform. The polish is also superior to that of waxed beads.
When I told the supplier that I got strands that were larger than promised (these are supposed to be 6mm to 6.5mm), he offered me a discount on them, which I am passing on to you. You won't see this price again once these are gone.
Buy a pack of 10 beads here or save money on a full strand.
