Chunky style and interesting dimension make the bronzite 25x30mm faceted hexagon 8-inch bead strand from Dakota Stones a perfect choice for your bold jewelry designs. Each large bead features asymmetrical hexagon shapes with large facets cut into the surface. The lovely chocolate brown stone is flecked with golden swirls that shimmer magnificently. The bronze-like metallic luster of this stone is caused by the iron content in the material. Once used by Ancient Romans as protection against mental illness and confusion, bronzite is now mined in Canada, India and the USA. The energy of bronzite increases self esteem and alleviates indecision and doubt. 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.
