Dakota Stones Green Goldstone 10x20mm Rice Bead Strand

Subtle touches of dramatic glitter fill the green goldstone 10x20mm rice beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these almond-shaped beads feature an intense dark green color that is almost black, peppered with flecks of lighter green sparkle. Goldstone is actually glass with flecks of copper suspended within to give it its characteristic glitter. The glass is made in a reducing furnace with copper salts added. Goldstone has been around since the European Renaissance. Stories say that it was discovered by Venetian monks when molten copper accidentally tipped into a molten glass container. Also known as sandstone, goldstone is said to be helpful to bones, painful joints and circulation. These beads are made in Italy and China. 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.
