There was a label on these that said Peddles.

Photographing Quartz on a white background is definitely a lost cause - there just isn't enough contrast to make it look nice. So the black background is black velvet. Which is a nightmare to keep lint and dust free, I might add.

12mm x 15mm Approx. 19 on 16 inch (40.64 cm) strand. (strand)

Quartz crystal, also known as "Rock Crystal" - a colourless transparent stone - origin of the term "rhinestone." Small, tumbled quartz stones were found in the bed of the river Rhine and initially thought to be diamonds. When it became apparent that these stones did not have the hardness of diamond, but were a passable simulation, the term "rhinestone" came to be synonymous with "imitation diamond."

We try to choose consistent stock, but the nature of natural stones is that there will be inconsistency between strands and between individual beads.
