These are old stock - natural Rhodochrosite beads cut in rondelle shape. Gorgeous AA quality color and polish on these 10mm beads. Rhodochrosite gemstones are from South America and are a gorgeous deep pink color with cream colored banding. They were a favorite of Native Americans and can be seen in Navajo silver jewelry. I think they look beautiful mixed with crystals, mother of pearl and black onyx.
- The bead size is 10 x 6mm
- Strand is 15" long
