Hi, I just happened across your site while getting ideas for my wire wrap gemstones and sea glass.

The fact that you give away information, don’t insist personal information, has bought my business already.

To add to the joy (yes, I’m prone to hyperbole but I’m absolutely enchanted with your business model), you add stone treatment information rather than burying it somewhere.

It’s very important to me to be able to tell my customers the what’s been done to their stones, the quality, source and composition of the gems they buy.

I believe I’m the only vendor to have the FCC and AGIA disclosure booklets available at any festival I’ve attended.

You have a customer now and, if OK, I will use your page on stone treatments, with proper attribution of course, as a handout at my next festival the end of this month.

Brightest blessings,

Azurite Gemstone Beads, Pendants and Cabochons

Premium quality wholesale Azurite gemstone beads, pendants and cabochons for jewelry making and designing. Carefully selected gemstones help you create outstanding necklaces, bracelets and earrings. If you like the blue of Lapis, take a look the gemstone Azurite. In its true form, Azarite is a blue gemstone that changes into Malachite under certain conditions. Usually Azurite and Malachite are found together in the same rock. It is not very common to find and even more uncommon to make beads from it as it is usually made into cabochons. Azurite is very soft and it is hard to make a lot of product from just the thin line containing both Azurite and Malachite. These "Azurite" beads are natural Lapis Lazuli and natural Malachite put together with a stabilizing agent that is cut into beads. Since man conducts this process, there are many variations in the quality of Azurite gemstone beads. Specimens fluctuate from Magnesite painted to look like Azurite and dyed colored stones pressed together to replicate this bead to natural high quality Lapis and Malachite compressed with stabilization. The latter are, obviously, the highest quality. Azurite was historically ground down to make paint pigments. Sometimes artists blue skies and seas would turn green as the Azurite turned to Malachite before their eyes. It was disconcerting to say the least.
