    These are four separate strands of carved Chinese beads which are true to
    the photo colors. One is citrine. The other three test for spinel but I am
    not going to say that is for sure but I think they are because they are not
    quite the colors of topaz or aquamarine and do not test in the aquamarine
    range. All but one have classic Chinese silver clasps and are about 16 to 18
    inches in length.

      All three together are a statement! Love them all with a little preference for the citrine one, unusual shape :-)

      I think the blue ones may be fluorite :-))

      Oh this is bead poetry! They are all very beautiful!

      Me too. I like that the citrines are longer and graduated. On the others I like
      the color.

      Bead poetry, I like that. The other night on that TV show Strange Inheritance
      a lady inherited a huge collection of rare beads. At the first round of auctions
      she made $300,000. ONE rare African bead sold for $14,000. It made me think
      of beads............

      Beads are interesting indeed. I found a book at the library about the origin of different Beads. Until then I had no clue there were bead collectors and that beads could be so expensive. Your necklaces are the most beautiful I have seen. Love the semitransparent look about them.

      Thank you. I am a bead lover too. That is probably what started me on the road to
      vintage and antique jewelry.
    8. wpj wpj, 2 years ago
      I agree. Fluorite they are!! :)

      And colors are well matched!
    10. wpj wpj, 2 years ago
      I went through them and took out all the broken and discolored ones. :)
