Special purchase - B to C grade gemstone chip beads
Commercial grade leopardskin chip beads. Leopardskin jasper is an opaque variety of chalcedony, a type of quartz, named for the warm color combination of "spots" that closely resemble the rosette patterns of a leopard's coat. The beads exhibit a range of earth tones -- mauve, brown, grey, honey and cream -- and have a matte polish. Sold per package of 50 chip beads.
Chip beads add great flashes of color and fabulous texture when used as an accent in a beaded design of smooth shaped beads.
