Amethyst Faceted Rondelle 3-4x8mm

16" strand $22.70 OUT OF STOCK
½ strand (loose) $11.85 OUT OF STOCK

These amethyst faceted rondelles have a unique cut. I would call them a bit thinner than most rondelle cuts, which means there are more beads on a strand than normal. They have a nice organic look because each cut is not the same, which leads me to believe that they are hand-cut.

More about Amethyst

Due to its beautiful coloring, amethyst is one of the most prized members of the macrocrystalline quartz family. The ancient Greeks believed that drinking wine from a vessel made from amethyst would make the drinker immune to intoxication (nice try!). In fact, the word “amethyst” is derived from the ancient Greek word “amethustos”, which means “not drunk”.

Our amethyst gemstone beads are a deep, rich violet color. If you prefer a paler lavender coloring, try our Cape Amethyst beads.

Traces of iron in the quartz give amethyst gemstones their distinctive hue, which ranges from pale lavender to deep violet. Amethyst deposits can be found in Brazil, Madagascar, Zambia, Uruaguay, Burma, India, Canada, Mexico, Namibia, Russia, Sri Lanka, and The United States (Arizona).
