Blue Crackle Agate, Lava beads with silver accent.
Agate beads are a banded and or multi-colored member of the quartz family. The characteristic bands of color are caused by the presence of iron and manganese. Agate, one of the oldest known gems has been valued for thousands of years.
Lava Rock beads are literally made from cooled down molten rock (Basalt, an igneous rock). When a volcano erupts, red hot molten rock spills out of the volcano and flows away as lava until it becomes cool, solid, porous and black These porous beads are really terrific in aromatherapy in that they hold the essential oil for long periods of time.
