Sodalite Rice Beads are 16mm long and 6mm diameter and are thickest at the center tapering gently to the ends. Beads are drilled through the center along the long axis of the bead. Sodalite is primarily a deep navy / royal blue stone with white patches. Sodalite is a component of Lapis and can be difficult to distinguish one from the other. These beads are smooth beads with a polished silky luster.
Rice Beads have a hole size that is approx 1.0mm - big enough for a 20 AWG wire but may be too small for an 18 AWG wire.
Strands are sold as temporarily strung. Strands are approximately 16" and can vary +/- 0.5".
