    This is beautiful! I thought it might be coffee bean jasper, but when I looked at Lima Beads, it looks different.

    I would have to agree with you Alice on the Petrified Green Opal beads being your mystery bead. I love the bead combined with the new jade and the copper. I know you use mostly silver but I am partial to the copper. But I wear any color anymore. Love this set. Beauty
