These large red malachite beads in this necklace look to me like orbiting planets.

    Wowza! The malachite beads are perfect with the unakite. I need to find some of the masochist in my area.

    I also think the Unakite was a fantastic choice. The bits of orange in it mixed with the green helps ground those large red ‘planets’! You must have an awesome stash of beads :)

    I agree about the Malachite and the Unakite – beautiful combination. And the gold beads highlight the stones so well. Lovely Althea.
