    Morning All,
    I'm trying to figure out if the beads are glass or ? They are cold and heavy, kind of smoky/cloudy rather than clear, have inclusions in them.
    The first 4 photos show a true colour of the beads, the last 2 photos are in the sunlight. The necklace is 19 3/4"L, quarters shown for size reference
    any information appreciated
    thanks for looking:)

    My sense is that they are stone, although am more certain of what they are not than of what they are. Have been turned into a necklace in the most inexpensive way possible, so are not going to be highly valuable. Just out of curiosity, have they been looked at under UV light?

    thanks Bronwen:) I just added a couple of photos under a blacklight - not a brilliant glowing green, a few of them do react somewhat

    Probably olivine or serpentine, first guess. It's sometimes called "new jade" but jade it ain't.
