Bronze-like shine and unique patterns come together in the bronzite 8mm faceted roundel 8-inch bead strand from Dakota Stones. Each bead features cut facets all over its rounded shape to add interesting dimension. Flecks of dark brown color mix with flecks of gold to create mesmerizing patterns. The bronze-like metallic luster is caused by the iron content in the material. This stone is mined in Canada, India and the USA. Bronzite is thought to bring harmony to its wearer. Because these beads are made from natural materials, no two beads look exactly alike, so your projects will have unique flair every time. Dakota Stones offers high-quality gemstones that are all useable in jewelry designs because every bead is checked to make sure they are cut and drilled correctly, that the finish is right and that the beads look distinct to their stone type.
