Add the colors of the harvest into your designs with these matte carnelian 6mm roundel beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these beads are thin rounds and slightly cylindrical in shape, making them perfect for use as spacers. These beads feature warm matte colors that range from deep red to orange, honey and pale yellow. Carnelian is a translucent chalcedony or an A-grade agate that receives its beautiful red tints from iron oxides. These beads have been tumbled to give them a matte finish. Ancient Egyptians carried carnelian on and about their bodies as a source of constant renewal and vitality. These beads are made from natural gemstones, so color may vary from bead to bead. 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.
