These Chinese amazonite faceted drum beads have lovely blue-green coloring. These are hand-cut, so the bead shape is not consistent, providing a more organic look. Be sure to check the second picture to see the cutting.
The hue within the strand is consistent. Some beads show pitting and small stains, but the polish is wonderful. Read my article on Chinese amazonite that explains that these beads are actually dyed microcrystalline quartz.
