Cut frosted round beads made of agate mineral with a diameter of 8 mm and with a hole for a thread with a diameter of 1 mm. Except for the white color, the beads are always surface-dyed to the appropriate color shade. In their drusen, agate forms concentrically grouped circular formations, in which the strength of the mineral alternates, thus creating differently colored shades of agate, which can be found in the whole spectrum of colors. Agates can also be artificially colored (as in the case of these beads) and a similar effect is created as with agate druses. Depending on how the color has caught on the bead, small cracks appear on it and the natural coloration also gives the final appearance of the bead. Thanks to all these influences, each bead is completely unique - it has a unique relief and color. The beads are not polished, only cut and the matte appearance further underlines their perfection. Sometimes these types of colored unpolished agate beads are also called dragon agate.

Due to the color setting of the monitor, the color of the goods may differ slightly from reality.
