The earthy color of soil mixes with the color of red clay in the bird's eye rhyolite 12mm square beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these slightly puffed square-shaped beads feature bands of red, yellow and brown color swirling together to form 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 ignite the potential and creativity of the soul. 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.
