For the jewelry-maker or beading enthusiast, here are 50 beads made of China Jade
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 stone seems dusty to me. Not in texture, but in color. Like the colors are there, but are seen through a haze of smog. It's actually a nice, mottled stone that is very unique.
