Faceted dimension and rich bronze color make the bronzite 7x12mm faceted nugget 8-inch bead strand from Dakota Stones perfect for adding to contemporary jewelry designs. Each bead features cut facets to give it a chunky nugget shape. Flecks of bronze, brown and gold give these beads gorgeous color. The bronze-like metallic luster is caused by the iron content in the material. Bronzite is a stone belonging to the pyroxene group of minerals mined in Canada, India and the USA. Bronzite is said to provide the ability to resolve unsettled emotions in our life. Because these beads are made from natural materials, no two beads will look exactly alike, so your designs will have unique elements 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.
