Bead, "jade" (dyed), green, 2mm round. Sold per 16-inch strand.
These vibrantly colored beads are commonly mistaken for fine quality jade. They are actually translucent quartz, well-polished and permanently dyed. Color saturation varies among sizes with the smaller millimeter sizes being lighter in color than the larger sizes. Colors may vary per dye lot.
What is Jade?
Jade is an ornamental stone. The term jade is applied to two different rocks that are made up of different silicate minerals. Nephrite jade consists of the calcium- and magnesium-rich amphibole mineral actinolite (aggregates of which also make up one form of asbestos). The rock called jadeitite consists almost entirely of jadeite, a sodium- and aluminium-rich pyroxene. The trade name Jadite is sometimes applied to translucent/opaque green glass.
