Amazonite, also known as Amazon stone, was first identified near the Amazon river in South America. These beautiful Amazonite stone beads come in a barrel style shape, and have a hole size of 1mm. Each bead measures approximately 10-30 x 8-16mm, with each strand measuring approximately 17" in length. Each strand is unique and size of beads may vary. This is a very unique cut imported from Afghanistan that is hard to find. Supplies may be limited.
