Opalite (glass) Beads

Opalite is the trade name for man(or woman!) made opalised glass. While not a true gemstone, the chatoyancy of the glass gives these opalite beads a depth similar to that of true moonstone or opal. They are semi-transparent with soft, delicate colors. Many of our opalite beads also have an AB finish, which adds to the depth and color-play of each stone!
