Glorious Antique Jewelry
Banded agate is one of nature's miracles. These stones were cut so that the white layer in the agate makes a stripe smack in the middle of each bead. They were then polished to a patent leather gloss, lively, reflective and smooth. When diligently inspected, a faint trace of chocolate brown can be detected under bright light. It lends depth and warmth to the beads. The strand is delicately graduated, the smallest agates measure .33mm and increase in size to 13.0 mm. The length of the strand is 38 inches.
