Dakota Stones Green Goldstone 30x40mm Oval Bead Strand
Bold, glittering elements can be a part of your designs with the green goldstone 30x40mm oval beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these wide oval beads feature an intense dark green color that is almost black, peppered with flecks of lighter green sparkle. These beads are large enough to use as focal points and would look great as a backdrop for gold beads. 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 be a good deflector of unwanted energies and is therefore a protection stone. 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.
