These realistic-looking block malachite beads offer you economical options for gemstone jewelry! Block gemstones (sometimes mistakenly called reconstituted gemstones) tend to be composed of all manmade materials, without any actual rock or stone. Tests have shown the material to be lead free!
These faux malachite beads look similar to genuine malachite, and provide the signature pretty bands of varying shades of green. The surface of these beads feels slightly plastic-like, but these beads do offer a decent gem-like weight to them at a fraction of the cost of real malachite.
