There are a wide variety of stones available that are above 7 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness such as agate, amethyst, aquamarine, carnelian, citrine, emerald, garnet, jasper, onyx, quartz, ruby, sapphire, spinel, topaz and tourmaline. Fortunately the Mohs Harness is listed in the description of each gemstone bead and component that we carry, so you will have no problem finding the perfect stone for your design. When making the lariat's dangle, make sure to use the thickest headpin that the bead's hole can accommodate for additional strength.
