These 8mm round rock crystal beads are not gray but beautifully clear, center drilled, and with great polish. (Photographing clear beads on white makes the beads look gray.)
My supplier assures me these beads are made from natural rock crystal. But I've been told by gemologists that most of the rock crystal sold to the jewelry trade is of synthetic manufacture, meaning that they are true quartz but grown in a lab. I am therefore listing them as possibly synthetic.
- Bead Size: 7.95mm to 8.2mm
- Strand Length: 15.75" Minimum
