For the jewelry-maker or beading enthusiast, here are 50 beads made of Azurite Malachite
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! This gem is
created by taking natural Azurite and Malachite, and combining them with
a stabilizer. It is also found naturally, but is so rare the it is
hard to find at a reasonable price. This human-built stone is a nice
approximation of the real thing.
