This is a nice “gemmy” Vesuvianite Bead faced with Pacific Red Abalone shell. Nicely translucent as shown in one of the pictures. Vesuvianite is a fascinating mineral found originally on the volcano, Mt Vesuvius in Italy. Vesuvianite is a somewhat rare and beautiful gemstone that can rival many other minerals for interest among mineral collectors and jewelry makers. This Grade A Vesuvianite is sourced from the Happy Camp mine in Northern California.
Weight: 4 grams
Bead comes standard with waxed polyester cord and small beads that act as slip beads. Shown with Optional Slip Beads.
Custom Slip Beads is an option for all beads and pendants and will come automatically on some items. These beads are hand made by me to perfectly fit the diameter of the cord for a perfect slide to adjust the length when worn or taking off. They also are made of gem grade materials and depending on the style, they may be of matching materials.
Price Standard Option: $55
Price with Custom Slip Beads: $85
