Item details

ITEM NAME : Lepidolite Smooth Round Beads
COLOR: # Ranges of Berry Pinkish Purple to a Grayish Plum Purple. Variation of colors will be seen within strands as well as very light spots on some beads (please consult photos using zoom)

SIZE: 8mm
THREAD HOLE: approx 1mm
QUANTITY: one 15 inch strand (approx 46-48 beads)
MATERIAL: Lepidolite - phyllosilicate mineral of the mica group

ITEM DESCRIPTION: Beautiful coloring - Medium and mottled tones with occasional light coloring. Each bead is slightly different from each other - So pretty!
When you look at the closeup photos, you will also notice little flecks of sparkle and occasional surface pits. (Mohs hardness is about 2.5 to 4)

Any props used in photos are not included with your purchase.

ADDITIONAL INFO: As with all of natures creations, expect variations/striations from bead to bead and strand to strand.

The pictures you are looking at may be closeups so you can see the details on the beads...please consult the listing for item measurements.

PHOTOGRAPH INFORMATION:

I do my best to take accurate photos of items I sell. All pictures are taken inside using light tent/filters by Doug Baldwin with daylight bulbs. Please keep in mind that light type and computer monitor settings could possibly show a slightly different color/tone/brightness to the beads.

For each multi angle photo posted - I actually take 4-5 photos of each view, and select the one that best represents the products you see. I also provide an overview photo of stock on hand so you can see the overall coloring of that batch.

Because I also do shoot at different angles, it's possible that beads that are "underneath" will appear darker due to shadowing.

If you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. I'm happy to be of assistance
