SO PRETTY! I really like citrine. There is only one store in my immediate area where I can get gemstone beads, but unfortunately the strands they sell don't have any information about the grade or possible treatments the stones have had. Do you ever have the same problem?
Yes I do, and find that the strands tend to use a dye and come from Asia. These beads come from a local place where they sell them individually as hand cut stones. If you can find a local place like that - you might find more interesting stones! If you are in the New England area, I'm happy to make suggestions
