What a rare find we have here! The sizes really vary but the average length of these beautiful raw cut beads is 1 inch to 2.5 inches. They also vary in thicknesses from 6 to 8mm. The material of these gemstone beads was taken from the rough which makes them even more beautiful in our opinion. Notice the unusual color of greens within the beads and hints of the purple and other colors throughout. Taking the stone from the rough and then polishing them and leaving all the natural inclusions gives you a much more interesting beads. These gemstone beads are exquisite naturally. They have a rustic, ethnic quality rarely found in gemstones. You are going to really like these beauties in person. No two strands are exactly alike but all are naturally beautiful beads. These Charoite gemstone beads are really unusual. WOW, these gemstone beads make quite a statement! Semi-precious Charoite is an unusual mineral of rare occurrence that is only found in the Chara River area of Siberia. It has shades of violet and deep purple with veins of black, gray, and white. It is said that putting Charoite gem stones under your pillow at night will chase away the fears that appear in your dreams.
