Cut from amber, these beautiful uneven round beads are approximately 4-5mm in size and come on a 15.5" strand. Each strand is shaded to give you a variety of colors. This listing is for 1 randomly selected strand.
I originally got these from a gemstone store I used to work for that sold them for $98 a strand. I bought more than I needed, so I am selling them for the same price I paid.
