Green Angelite 8mm Beads
What is this mysterious stone?! These beads display a soft, shimmering green intertwined with near-white. The trade name is 'green angelite' but the crystal structure looks different - the pattern strongly resembles larimar. After some research, we suspect that this is actually 'pectolite.'
Larimar is, in fact, pectolite! What makes it 'larimar' is the unique blue coloration and its origin in the Dominican Republic. These beads are most likely pectolite mined in another location, tinted green by a different cocktail of trace elements than the better-known larimar.
Whatever it is, this is lovely, subtle, unique material that's new to the market and we hope to see more of it in the future.
Each strand is sold separately and measures approximately 15 inches long. The beads are about 8.5mm in diameter, with roughly 48 beads per strand and 24 per half strand.
These are available by both the full strand and the half strand.
- Making a bracelet? Purchase a half strand.
- A necklace? For a 16" finished length, a single full strand will do. If you want to go longer, consider one full and one half strand.
- Mala? You will need two full strands and one half strand, and will have a few beads left over.
