Browns and yellows swirl with reds in the bird's eye rhyolite 12mm round beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these large, round beads feature bands of red, yellow and brown color swirled together in unique patterns. Rhyolite was named "streaming rock" because of its beautiful bands, bubbles and crystal-rich layers that form as lava flows onto the surface of the stone. Rhyolite can look very different, depending on how it erupts. Rhyolite has a composition similar to granite but has a smaller grain size. Mined in Mexico, rhyolite shows us how to relish the vast potential within ourselves. This is a stone used for meditation, progression in life and focusing on the present moment and resolving issues not yet complete. Dakota Stones offers high-quality gemstones that are all useable in jewelry designs because every bead is checked to ensure they are cut and drilled correctly, that the finish is right and that the beads look distinct to their stone type.
