(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, introduces a new line of gemstone strands from India. Beautifully hand-cut and faceted, the beads are available in a variety of sparkling shapes including ovals, flat rounds, puffed squares, triangles, hexagons, teardrops, cubes and rectangles. With great clarity and consistent color, this selection of gemstones is ideal for high-end jewelry designs. Breathtaking by themselves, the quality gemstones also look great when paired with each other.

Amethyst--A beautiful purple stone created when crystals grow on the inside surface of agate geodes. Some of the largest amethyst geodes are found in Brazil. The breathtaking crystals can reach up to several feet in height. Always a popular choice, amethyst is prized for its regal color and natural beauty. It is commonly believed to evoke feelings of serenity and calmness in those who wear it.

Onyx--Black and green onyx are a form of the larger classification of chalcedony (kal-SID-nee). While onyx is found worldwide, the best supplies come from Brazil. This selection of dyed onyx has deeply saturated color with no banding or inclusions. It's not hard to see why onyx was a favorite of the ancient Romans for creating art and jewelry. Black onyx is commonly believed to have protective qualities, and be helpful in fighting fears. Green onyx is believed to encourage spiritual growth and encouragement.

Quartz--Quartz is the most abundant mineral on earth, with deposits found all over the world, but there is nothing ordinary about its beauty. This selection includes rose, smoky, golden, crystal and lemon quartz. In gorgeous shades of pink, taupe, honey, lemon and icy clear, these gemstone strands offer a myriad of design possibilities. Quartz is commonly believed to be a very powerful stone, used by many for healing and channeling energy.

The beads are temporarily strung with colorful tassels for a nice retail presentation.
