This orange-pink translucent feldspar gem has a spangled appearance (called 'schiller') from inclusions of tiny, flat copper scales within the crystal. Relatively new as a gemstone, sunstone is valued for its optical effects and rich, warm color.
Our teardrop sunstone beads are side-drilled across the top and faceted on both sides. They make lively accents for wire wrapped jewelry, or earring and necklace components.
Approximately 53 beads in 7" strand. Hole size approximately .50mm. Beads sold strung on .30mm (28-29 gauge) beading wire. Because these gemstone beads are shaped and faceted by hand, they can vary slightly from the size ranges given.
