    Details

    Malay Jade Purple (Dyed Quartzite) 4mm Round Beads (~90 pce Strand) - 38 cm /15" Strand Approximate.

    Malay Jade is a dyed Quartzite and not in fact a true Jade at all. Quartzite is a very hard stone and similar in looks to marble, however unlike marble quartzite will not scratch with a knife. Quartzite is formed through the alteration of the composition of quartz-rich sandstones.

    Please note shades of purple can vary between batches from very light to medium purple.
