Our worldwide bead repository includes many esteemed semi-precious stones – including this very nice group of 90 rice-shaped magnetic Haematite beads weighing in at 35 grams.
Most creative beaders will attest to the importance of having a healthy selection of semi-precious beads on hand to use when creating jewellery such as necklaces, earrings, or bracelets.
These 4x7mm beads would make a useful addition to your jewellery-making bead box – with each bead having a 1mm centre-drill threading hole, while the colour black – goes with virtually any other colour!
Also, Haematite is a grounding stone that is known for its stability and protection qualities.
It is also known for its ability to help some health ailments, while magnetic beads can aid stress situations, blood circulation, and fatigue symptoms.
The mineral comes from Western Australia, Venezuela, North America (Lake Superior), Brazil, and Eastern Canada.
And because the mineral content contains about 70 percent of iron ore, it is highly sought after for its use in the manufacturing of steel.
That said, this collection has been heavily discounted with each bead now costing roughly $0.088 each – a must-have for your jewellery-making box of goodies.
