These 6mm round green emerald beads have pretty consistent coloring throughout the strand with some interesting black inclusions. They are semi-translucent with good shape and drilling.
According to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), "Chromium, vanadium, and iron are the trace elements that cause emerald’s color. The presence or absence of each and their relative amounts determine the exact color of an emerald crystal."
You can buy 10 beads here or save on a full strand.
