Hey All! I went to the Gem and Jewelry show up here in MI and found some really amazing sales. There were booths with 70% of Swarovski! I picked up a few strands of beads and I'm not really sure what they are. I was hoping that some gifted gemologists out there could help me.
This first one look like really low quality amethyst with inclusions. They are polished and fairly solid little stones. I'm not sure what they are though.
These next remind me of moonstones with their iridescent color and smooth surfaces.
These may just be polished stone or beads but I love them. They are electric purple and have the same sheen that the previous ones do.
These look like tiger's eye but I know they aren't.
Finally, these look like jade or little skittles! I have no idea on them
