This is a listing for one full strand of zebra agate beads. These earth tone gold zebra agate oval beads are wild and different. They almost look like fossil ivory to me, that wonderful creamy light tan background with the little markings and striations. The other markings include a brown which has some transparency to it. Since agate is in the quartz family, I suspect that this is smoky quartz inclusions in the light golden tan matrix in these large flat oval gemstone beads. There is also a hint of orange here and there throughout the stones. This is a thoroughly interesting and thought provoking stone. These wonderful beads are shown from both sides in the first two photographs. These beads are in an earth tone color palette, ready for your next jewelry making project. Agate is a healing stone. See the metaphysical attributes below.

Everything is packed as securely as possible. Anyone can request a shipping upgrade to USPS Priority Two Day mail or USPS Express Mail.

At this time, ForetTwo is shipping to domestic US customers only. I might make an exception on a case by case basis for international buyers. There is a $25.00 surcharge on any international shipment as well as postage and insurance fees. International customers are responsible for all customs fees and taxes in your country.
All items are shipped with full insurance and delivery confirmation. You may opt out of insurance on request *before* you place your order. Larger orders are automatically upgraded to USPS Priority Small Box and include full insurance and delivery confirmation.
ForetTwo accepts PayPal (which means all credit cards, debit cards etc are payable through PayPal, and you don't need a PP account to make payments) and Etsy Payments which work pretty much the same way.
Completion of payment is expected at the time of purchase. If you want to make arrangements to reserve an item or to have a discount applied, please message me with details *before* checking out. Items will be listed as RESERVED for 24 hours only.
ForetTwo is now encouraging US customers to pay via Money Order or Cashier's Check as well. The general turnaround time for a Money Order/Cashier's Check which is mailed ASAP is 4-6 business days for you to receive your purchase. I expect buyers to get their MO or Cashier's Check in the mail as close to the time of purchase as humanly possible so we can keep things moving. I appreciate a quick message to confirm when payment has been sent. As soon as your MO or cashiers check clears, your order will be shipped. If I have not received the MO or Cashier's Check within five working days, you will get one reminder before I cancel the sale.
