These Hypersthene beads are new to me --- I've never seen them before, and I love them! Black beads can look dull and rock-like, even when faceted. Hypersthene is translucent and displays a silvery band, which gem people call 'schiller'. I'm not a good enough photographer to show this to its best effect.


20x10mm Hypersthene ovals are paired with 8mm carved, oxidized Sterling bead dangles. Carved and oxidized Sterling posts. 1 1/2"
