This listing is for one 16" strand of PEACH MOONSTONE "A+" Grade stone nugget beads. This interesting natural color stone is a variety of Feldspar with silvery peachy gold iridescence and a pearly luster. More specifically, it is a mixture of two species of Feldspar, orthoclase and albite, which grow intermingled in thin stacked layers - when light falls between these thin flat crystalline layers, it scatters in many directions, causing a flash of light; this quality is called Schiller, or "Adularesence". These beads came from the same premium grade cutting factory that produces many of the cabochons in my store - the stone is very good quality, graded "A+" by the cutting factory. These beads are simple tumbled nuggets, average size is about 7-8x10mm - they are a bit irregular in size/shape; but quite nicely made, cut from stone with lots of shimmer, finished with a nice glossy polish. Your bid for one item buys one 16" strand taken from the same hank shown in the pictures; there are approximately 39-40 beads on each strand.
