Details

Legend - Often called Malay Jade but not a true Jade it is actually dyed Quartzite. Quartzites are formed through the metamorphism of quartz-rich sandstones. They are formed mostly of the mineral quartz. Quartzite may sometimes look like marble, but can be distinguished because quartzite cannot be scratched with a knife, unlike marble. Nor does it react with weak acid, as does marble. It is very hard and weather resistant. Description - These beads are dyed an attractive "Celadon Green". Sold as temporary strung 40cm (approx) strands.
