For the jewelry-maker or beading enthusiast, here are 50 beads made of Frosted Rose Quartz
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! There is no
such stone as "Frosted Quartz." It's just regular old Rose Quartz; the
"Frosted" refers to the finish. These are treated with an acid wash
after tumbling instead of being polished. The result is a nice matte
look. We got these from an individual seller many years ago in a one-time batch, and I have never seen them on the Web anywhere else. Once these are gone, they are gone for good.
