These primitive stone beads have a decidedly rustic feel. Formed from naturally translucent quartz stone, the carved oval pattern highlights the unique quality of the stone. Skilled Nepali artisans craft each individual bead by hand and have finished the beads nicely with a nice string. The length of the strand measures about 25" with 20 beads measuring between 18-25mm wide and 15-17mm in diameter and a hole size of 1mm. The size of these beads makes them suited for for decor or jewelry-making.
