This one was an impulsive buy from blurry pics...
IT IS NOT JADE, BUT RARE NATURAL CHRYSOPRASE!
Big beads,7/16" or 12 mm diameter, intense apple green color, it is strange there is a kind of "cup" around the drilled holes.
It had no clasp, but I had one in sterling, French crab hallmark, paste diamonds and synthetic rubies (fluorescent) that flash enough to complement the striking color.
You can see the angled lines characteristics for agate type stones :-)
