For the jewelry-maker or beading enthusiast, here are 50 beads made of Amber
chips. Chips are the small leftovers from tumbled stones or shells,
with holes drilled through them. Mix them with other stone beads and
metallic spacers for endless possibilities.
[Please allow for natural variations in the stones.]
Tell Me More! When you get
these, don't be alarmed that they seem very lightweight, almost like
plastic! Real Amber has a very low density, and the beads will even
float in salt water. Rest assured that all accuracy tests have been done
on these beads, and they've passed!
- Stone: Amber
- Color: Transparent brown; no insects; lots of inclusions for a "crackled" look
