Approximately 14-20mm faceted nugget mookaite gemstone beads. There are 21-25 beads per 16" strand. Mookaite beads are considered to have healing properties and to bestow strength. Gemstone beads from India tend to be made from high-quality stones, but their cut and polish tends to be less precise. As a result, these beads may be slightly irregular in shape with holes that are sometimes off-center, rough, and/or small.
