40cm strand (approximately 140 beads) of manmade howlite rondelle disc shaped beads, each bead is approximately 6.3mm x 3mm. These beads have brown veins and have been dyed in a mix of colours - turquoise, red, pink, yellow, green, orange and more. Whilst their exact composition remains somewhat a mystery, we feel that they have been created with a mixture of howlite and resin. Howlite is believed to make one at home in both the spiritual and physical worlds and these beads are a great inexpensive alternative to the natural gemstone. Please note that colours and sizes within semi-precious gemstones vary slightly from strand to strand.
