Our bead repository includes a number of highly prized semi-precious stones – a small collection of Burmese (Myanmar) Green Stone.
In this collection, the package contains 62 unpolished button-shaped Green Stone beads - a useful addition to the ethnic necklace you are planning to create!
These button beads work well and are popular with beaders bent on creating ethnic-style tribal or boho-style statement jewellery because of their beautiful green colour.
or how each individual bead has been shaped or carved.
Our Green Stone is processed in Afghanistan but comes from various locations in Myanmar.
Purists are of the opinion that Green Stone aids depression, helps to relieve stress, and helps in dealing with fatigue.
Sources also claim this gemstone aids fertility.
That said, the beads in this collection weigh 76 grams, have been discounted, and work out to cost $0.387 each; they definitely belong in your jewellery-making box!
All contain a decent 1.5-2.5mm centre-drill hole which is suitable for threading with round leather, tigertail, or craftline (similar to fishing line).
The accompanying photos illustrate what to expect in your order; some images have been enlarged to show detail.
