    Love the cool greens and chunky beads! Could they also be known and Phrenite?

    @Elis Mom….I also thought they looked very much like prehnite but no, the colors are not the same. Seller says they are serpentine.

    I love your bracelet. The copper gives it a beautiful antique look. Normally I’m not attracted to the color in tiger’s eye, so I was surprised to see how you used it with the beautiful green stones, my favorite color. I have some prehnite, and the color is lighter and cooler and very translucent/transparent. I like the stones in your bracelet much better.
