“Enhanced Super-Natural”

Description from Rescue Greyhounds: these beads are all "color-enhanced" or otherwise artificially dyed to create these beautiful intense colors. I want to use them in my jewelry, but won't since they are not truly "natural". Bummer.

    I’m with Elaine. Congrats on being able to stick to your goal of using only undyed stones! I make jewelry out of slices of agates and my preference is definitely for nature’s designs and palette rather than man’s. I found it is important to wash these slices thoroughly, because sometimes some unexpected dye can come off. The first stone on your pick, the blue calsilica jasper is my alltime favorite! It looks great with vintaj products. I’ll take a photo soon and add it to my designs. Again, color is still my motivator! Have a great day!!!!

    Thanks everyone! I love the colors, but I use stones for “therapeutic” necklaces (kind of an ancient wisdom/new-age thing) and I don’t want to have even a hint of controversy about the nature of my stones. I would use them for myself, but then again I am a walking advertisement for my jewelry!

    I agree Rescue Greyhounds! I don’t like to use enhanced stones! I love gemstones because of their NATURAL beauty! If I want something “enhanced” I’ll use glass! Though they have been growing on me! Almost all FWPs are dyed and I’m wanting some of those stones too! Like the red fossil and the blue clsilica and the mystic blue feldspath! But I’m not sure! I’d have to make it VERY clear to my customers EXACTLY what they were getting!
