Iolite Rectangle Beads 15" Strand
Lovely simple Iolite rectangle beads in a light shade of blue and very good quality. This batch has littler rectangles than usual, some more square than rectangle, measuring 3x4mm or 5x4mm or thereabouts and each 15" strand has around 74 beads to a strand.
The word Iolite comes from the Greek for violet, although in bead form it is a true blue colour. The Vikings referred to it as 'water Sapphire' and the colour of the stone does change depending on the angle it is observed from. Each bead has colour variation within.
