Approximately 18x9x5mm tip-drilled faceted puffed marquise beads. There are 20-24 beads per 16" strand. Sodalite, This stone is not always available, so order now while supplies last. Sodalite is characterized by an intense dark blue hue with white and sometimes yellow streaks. Strung with plastic spacers.
Out of 22 beads on the strand - 5 are chipped on one of the tips and 1 is broken. So, 27% of these beads are unusable! They are absolutely beautiful stones otherwise. I just can't believe anyone would ship me this strand with so many chips/breaks. Isn't anyone looking at what is being packaged up to ship? :( -- [ R & T reply: Thank you for the review - please contact customer service (via the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page) and we'll make this right for you! Update: We have discounted the remaining strands, because our last few strands all have a similar number of damaged beads.]
