Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
We purchased these beads on one of our earlier buying trips to Hong Kong. The color is a true bright "lemon yellow " color and rather hard to reproduce in a photograph although I believe these pictures do an excellent job.
These beads are lemon yellow chalcedony ( which some people refer to as yellow jade but it is in fact the mineral chalcedony). Be sure of what you are buying!
These cheerful beads look wonderful when mixed with the many of the vintage Chinese porcelain beads I also have here in my shop. A perfect bead to incorporate into any of your spring designs!
Price is for 8 of these 8mm beads and we 100% guarantee them to be natural stone and vintage from the 1980's.
**These beads have been dyed this color as natural chalcedony is a pale grey color but as you can see, these beads are over 20 yrs. old and still look as gorgeous as ever with incredible luster and even distribution of color.
Chalcedony comes in all sorts of colors and goes under all sorts of names ( as I said, some people even represent it as jade so always be sure of what you're buying.)
I sold many of these lemon yellow chalcedony beads through the Smithsonian Institution's museum shop and mail order catalog during the 1980's and they were also featured in trunk shows at Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue during this same time period.
