I just love the colors of this bead! It would be awesome as a focal bead in a necklace, bracelet or other jewelry project or use it as a dreadlock bead. It is a beautiful blueish green and gray mixture of colors and has raised clear dots to give it added dimension and texture. It is about 1.35" (3.4cm) long, .75" (1.9cm) wide with an 8mm wide opening. It would best fit a dread about the thickness of a pencil or a little thicker.
