Glossy shine mixes with rich, earthy colors in the bird's eye rhyolite 8mm faceted roundel beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these rounded beads feature diamond-shaped facets cut all over their surface that make them shine. The bands of red, yellow and brown color swirl 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 is said to allow us to reach out and beyond our capabilities of what we think we can achieve by helping us to break through the mental barriers. 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.
