What stone is this bead?

Posted by Ellen Roy on Friday, January 30, 2015 Under: Beads and Findings
When shopping for stone beads we try to identify the stone before buying, however, this is not always possible.  Sometimes the vendor doesn't know, sometimes the vendor is overwhelmed and can't answer every query, sometimes the vendor forgets to write the stone name on the bag - the list goes on.  When we know the stone we write the name on the tag as we price it.  When we don't know a stone and need to look it up, here are a few websites we go to.  If you're trying to identify a stone you might want to check them out.

http://geology.com  - check out the gemstone section.  The website is full of interesting tidbits

http://rocktumbler.com/polished-stones/  - nice pictures of some stones

http://www.gemhut.com/gemidx.htm  - has an index by alpha and by color
