These pumpkin shaped melon beads are carved from a stone called magnesite or howlite. It has a texture and marbling like turquoise. Dyed orange, but quite a bit of color variation, and dark veins or dark crackle pattern. The orange color varies from a reddish orange to a light orange taupe. Because they are carved from a natural stone, there is also variation in size & shape. One 16-inch strand with 39 beads. Each bead is 11 to 13mm diameter, and about 10.5mm thick (the direction they are drilled.) They are strung on heavy fishing line, approx 0.5mm Please convo for questions or more photos. If you are very concerned about variation, I can send a photo of the actual strand I will ship, for your approval. I'm happy to combine shipping for $1.00 per additional item.
I will generally ship in 2 to 4 days by USPS. I haven't figured out prices for shipping outside the US, but please contact me if you want to do that, or get insurance, etc.
