Citrine

Citrine is a variety of quartz commonly found in Brazil, Bolivia, some areas of Africa and Russia. It’s name comes from the Latin word for yellow, ‘citrina,’ and these types of quartz beads come in different shades, from pale yellow to gold to brown. Citrine resembles topaz, and it is considered an alternative birthstone for the month of November. Its golden color reminds people of money, and legend has it that keeping a citrine in your cash drawer will drawn money to your business.

Amethyst

Because of its distinctive purple color, amethyst  is one of the most recognizable of the quartz beads. This purple stone is the birthstone for February. The world’s largest amethyst deposits are found in Brazil, Mexico, Uruguay, Russia and the African continent. Occasionally, quartz crystals are found containing both citrine and amethyst; these are called ametrine, and are both purple and yellow.

Smoky Quartz

Smoky quartz beads range in color from light, translucent gray to brown or black. Two varieties of smoky quartz are commonly found in northern Europe: morion, a dark brown or black crystal; and cairngorm, a yellow-brown crystal. Cairngorm is found in Scotland and is used to decorate kilt pins and the hilts of skean dhus, short knives worn with highland dress.

Tourmaline

Tourmaline is a striking gemstone that is often called “watermelon tourmaline,” because it comes in colors of green and pink, and it resembles a slice of watermelon.  It is mainly found in Brazil and Africa.Tourmaline beads look very attractive when set off by light pink rose quartz beads.

Labradorite

This unusual feldspar mineral comes mostly from Canada, but some has been found in Norway and Finland, as well. The stone appears dark gray or black, but refracted light makes labradorite beads flash blue, green or red. This effect is referred to as “Labradorescense.” The legend behind the stone is that the Northern Lights froze and pieces of it fell to Earth as Labradorite.

Pyrite

Pyrite is an iron sulfide mineral that is also known as “Fool’s Gold,” because it was sometimes mistaken for gold by inexperienced prospectors.  Although pyrite is popular for jewelry today, it was once used as part of the wheellock firing mechanism. Pyrite beads are metallic and shiny, and they pair very well with dark, richly-colored beads, such as lapis lazuli, carnelian or quartz beads like amethyst.

Peridot

Unlike tourmaline and different types of quartz beads, peridot only comes in shades of green. Peridot is often brought to the Earth’s surface by lava, and is sometimes found in meteorites. This olive green gem is the birthstone for August.
