About 6mm Beads
6mm beads are very small, lightweight, and pair very well with watches. Although the beads are small in appearance, please do not underestimate their great value. Their construction requires almost twice as much time and precision as a similar bracelet with 10mm beads. This is why labor time and costs are more for these items. While a 7.5" 10mm bracelet only requires 19 beads, a 7.5" 6mm bracelet requires 32 beads to be placed individually and drilled with a power drill before being securely sealed for optimum durability. This is why our 6mm bracelets and necklaces often cost more than their 8mm and 10mm counterparts.
About This Bracelet
Bead Size: 6mm
Bead Material: Matte black obsidian, Brass Accent
Obsidian is formed when hot lava comes into contact with cold water in volcanic regions. Some of the minerals included in obsidian are iron, titanium and manganese. This beautiful crystal looks a lot like matte black onyx, but it is very different. When examining obsidian closely, you will see the rainbow shimmering effect on some of the beads. It is quite beautiful and mystical. Obsidian was historically used in weapons and blades as the natural stone is sharp and strong. Fortune tellers used obsidian as mirrors since its surface is highly glossy and reflective in the polished form.
Zodiac: Obsidian is wonderful for all zodiac signs but especially scorpio and sagittarius.
Chakra: Forehead, Third Eye
