Dakota Stones Green Goldstone 12mm Round Bead Strand
The classic shape of these green goldstone 12mm round beads from Dakota Stones is only enhanced by the dramatic color and flecks of sparkle. Available in 8-inch strands, these large round 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 inside 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 symbolize human ingenuity to improve your life. 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.
