Cost per bead:

17.5 cents

Bead material:

Hematite (oxidized iron).

Country of origin:



8mm cube-shaped.  Unlike Czech beads, these cubes are 8mm from hole to hole, not from corner to corner, so they are quite large.


Metallic dark gray.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).


The beads appear to be in good shape, although an occasional bead has a nick or gouge (very few).  I am removing defective beads when I see them, but I am not examining all six sides of every bead.  If you get defective beads, please contact me.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.


Hematite is iron oxide.  In some forms it is red, but this hematite is just iron-colored.  Actually, it looks like dark steel.  Please note that solid metal beads like this are heavier than glass.  These large cubes are especially heavy.
