The beauty of these 6mm round blue chalcedony beads is difficult to capture with a camera. The beads are a pale blue and are semi-opaque to semi-transparent. This A grade has some inconsistency in color saturation and transparency and a bit more brown calcite than higher grades.
Most of the beads (if not all) I get are waxed. This is standard treatment that gives a good shine to the beads. These blue chalcedony beads are not waxed, which means the beads had to go through two more rounds of polishing with diamond powder than most manufacturers perform.
If you don't need a full strands, you can buy these in packs of 10 beads.
