The best of the best

Of all the stones I bought in my recent excursion, these are the most amazing. In fact, they might just be the most incredible stones I've ever owned (they are definitely the most expensive!)... so I thought they deserved their own post.




I have never before seen tourmaline beads this flawless. They are very uniform in size (one strand's beads measures 7.5-8mm and the other is 8.5-9mm), with gorgeous faceting and stunning color. I'm definitely going to use some myself; we'll see if I can part with any for my shop...
