This collection of nine strands of small and unpolished semi-precious stone beads should appeal to all serious beaders – particularly those who have an interest in creating delicate ethnic-style tribal jewellery – similar to jewellery created by the nomadic people of the Middle East.  

This collection comprises nine strands of green Jade, deep blue Lapis Lazuli, and jet-black Blackstone in nine strands –measuring between 15 -16 inches in length.    

More than 1350 individual beads – each piece different from the other, make up this extraordinary blend of exceptionally small and fine rocailles.

Just imagine two strands of A-Grade Lapis Lazuli from rich deposits throughout Afghanistan - a prized semi-precious stone since antiquity – partly because of its natural beauty, its ‘intense blue colour, and tiny gold pyrite flecks sprinkled throughout, plus its use in art and jewellery – but also for its metaphysical healing properties. 

Since time immemorial, Lapis Lazuli, has been regarded as a highly spiritual stone, believed to balance energy within the body – in particular, the throat, crown, and brow chakras.

Four strands of fine tube-shaped green Jade beads – were processed in Afghanistan but unearthed in the Himalayan region of Henan in northern China. Jade has often been referred to as the ‘Imperial Gem’ throughout the far east, and because of the stone’s reverence in Asia throughout the centuries, Jade has been used, not only to create many “utilitarian and ceremonial objects, from indoor decorative items to jade burial suits”, it has been used to create some of the finest jewellery. 

Also included in the collection, are three strands of Blackstone from northern Afghanistan.

The entire collection will provide exciting jewellery prospects – and are the ideal ingredients to make look-again necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.

The collection weighs in at 40 grams. Please bear in mind the accompanying photos have been enlarged to show detail.
