I saw these gorgeous beads at Tucson and had to have them. They have a beautifully consistent light yellow color and the many faces of the beads give a lot of light reflectance. The width of these heishi beads averages around 2.5mm. These were hand-cut in India.
Given the rarity of naturally formed citrine, these are presumed to be heated amethyst. There's just no way of knowing.
- Bead Size: 5.7mm to 6.5mm Square
