Delicious tiny and faceted. 3mm Pyrite bead strands. Finally just what you are looking for. A tiny faceted bead that reads truly unisex. Or should I say, unisexy... These are iron pyrite beads with a wonderful smokey grey tinged with gold satiny matte finish and the facets are cut in to give each facet a blazing gold sparkle. I love the play of the matte against the sparkle of the gold. This shade of greyish taupe works as a neutral background for most every color and skin tone. Great with all spacers. And this multi finish blends well with primitive, rustic, high end, masculine, even boho gypsy designs. Earth mother? Goes without saying. I love the way that it even smells like iron. The beads have a bit of heft to them, so they are perfect for tassels. They work equally well for masculine as they do for petite. For reference there are approximately 13 beads per inch. The 14" measurement is from start of beads to end of beads, not counting the thread wrap beginning nor end. The length of the entire strand you will receive is longer. You get one strand per buy.
They do have a definite goldish cast to them. Oh! Yes! They are a healing stone. Sometimes called "Fool's Gold" also called "Healer's Gold". It is a protection stone that also brings good luck and good fortune.
I bought these from a reputable Diamond and gem dealer in the Diamond District in NYC
