Popular large-hole gemstone beads are great for stringing over 4.5mm or smaller chain, leather, ribbon and other thicker stringing materials or multiple cords to increase design possibilities. Can be used with or without grommets. Sodalite showcases medium to deep blue-violet shades, accented with white or grey calcite that give it the look of denim lapis. Sodalite is an opaque stone with a vitreous luster. This hard gemstone material is suited for long-wearing jewelry that withstands heavy use.
