Classic Tube Beads made of Costa Rican greenstone and other native gemstones. Volcanic activity in Costa Rica has “cooked” ancient ocean bottom yielding these unique stones, which have been hand-selected, cut, drilled, and polished. These modern beads mimic authentic ancient beads of Costa Rica where craftsmen made jade and greenstone beads as a store of wealth and adornment for beauty and status. 

Beads are from ¾ to 1¼ inches long and ½ inch in diameter with large 3mm drilled holes to accommodate a cord or chain. Each bead is one-of-a-kind.
