These 12mm faceted green African prehnite beads are faceted into 128 facets with big amphibole inclusions. Higher grade prehnite lacks these inclusions, but many customers just love the unique character they offer. These beads are semi-translucent to translucent.
There's a wider variation than I like in the size of the beads. Fortunately, at this size it's not as obvious as it would be were these smaller beads. Most of the beads are around the same average size, but you'll find a noticeably smaller bead or two on the strand.
