These 6mm round sunstone beads are transparent with a highly reflective, peachy-orange color from hematite crystals within the stone. Some beads even have what look like tourmaline needles inside. Using high quality beads like these will definitely make your jewelry stand out from the crowd.
When I got down to two strands, I ordered five more, and the new stock is different. The schiller in the new beads is not as intense but the color is more saturated and consistent throughout the strand. So I created two variations in this listing. Click the down arrow next to the size and you'll see a picture of the variation.
You can buy the old stock here by the strand or you can get just a few beads.
Sunstone is a member of the feldspar family and displays an optical effect called schiller from reflections of light bouncing off inclusions within the stone.
