African Brown Rhyolite Beads
Our African Brown Rhyolite beads are evocative of moving desert sands and dramatic rock formations. These beads are a beautiful light terra cotta color with spots of red-brown and taupe. Lima Beads has carried this stone from day one - it is a classic, and deserves a spot in your bead box.
Rhyolite is a rock made up of quartz, feldspar, mica, and hornblende, and is very closely related to granite. While granite forms below the surface of the earth, rhyolite is an igneous rock that forms when magma is expelled from below the surface as lava and then cools rapidly.
Rhyolite is said to bring calm to its wearers by helping to clear negative emotions and allow you to live in the moment. Rhyolite is also thought to bring joy and inspiration, made possible by the aforementioned emotional cleansing.
