Your Shopping Cart is Empty


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,

Coral Gemstone Beads, Pendants and Cabochons

Premium quality wholesale Coral gemstone beads, pendants and cabochons for jewelry making and designing. Carefully selected gemstones help you create outstanding necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Coral, that often grows in the ocean like branches of trees is a calcium carbonate built up by the skeletal materials of small animals. Although it comes in a variety of colors, black, red and pink are usually the most valuable. This bead is fragile and jewelry makers and wearers need to protect it from hot water, bright sunlight and cosmetics. There are three kinds of coral beads available at Magpie Gemstones; bamboo, sponge, and Mediterranean. The first two are oil dyed and much less expensive. The natural Mediterranean is just that, natural. There is much less of it available on the world market. It is an excellent investment as the prices will rise over time. International clients, please be aware of your countries import laws as it is illegal to import coral to some countries and others you need to have documentation from your government to be allowed to do so.
