Like a setting desert sun, these matte carnelian 8mm round beads from Dakota Stones shine with hot color. Available by the strand, these beads are perfectly round and feature soft red color with hints of orange. These beads are the perfect size to showcase in necklaces and bracelets, so use them to create a fabulous jewelry set. Carnelian is a translucent chalcedony or an A-grade agate that receives its beautiful red tints from iron oxides. Most deep red carnelian is heat treated to darken the material evenly; these have been sandblasted to give them a matte finish. Carnelian is also known as the Mecca stone and natural agate. It has a Mohs hardness of 6.5. Metaphysical Properties: Often known as a motivation stone, carnelian is used for physical training and balancing body energy levels.
Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead.
Led by Jeff Elvin, Dakota Stones offers beautiful semi-precious gemstone beads. They take care to have a high-quality finished product by following their gemstones through the process of creation from rough rock to finished beads and cabochons.
