Bold, bright oranges in these semi-translucent 12mm round fire agate gemstone beads. Crab fire agate beads do not occur naturally in nature. The white veining is produced by heating the beads and then rapidly cooling them, which causes small fractures in the beads. My supplier tells me the color of these beads is caused by heating only, but I wouldn't doubt if they were dyed as well.
