1 Carat ruby beads, unheated Burma, drilled
These are beautiful pinkish red antique beads that are fully drilled. These gems were purchased from an old dealer stock, who acquired them in the 1960's from an even older collection. Some of the beads have been soaked in natural oil (A common practice for beads) - but have been spared an heat treatment whatsoever.
One gem is between 1-1.3 carats in size and roughly 4.5-5 mm in diameter, no two beads are the same and we do not allow for picking. The price listed is the price per stone
you are buying a natural item and there are subtle variations in the color and clarity of this otherwise similar parcel of gemstones.
