6mm cream howlite
I ordered six strands of these beads based on the photo as well as the reviews. I even called to ask in person if they looked just like the photo but didn't get an answer and left a message. I didn't get a return call so I placed the order hoping I would get what I see in the photo and unfortunately, I was disappointed. My lot has much more veining that I don't care for and I would describe the off white more as a pale butter cream. These look more like the 8mm photo which I didn't order because of the veining. This photo of the 6mm has more of a natural look and I hoped this would be what I would receive. They aren't horribly ugly but just not the type of howlite I like best. If return shipping was free I'd send them back. Lastly, the continuing sale was still great for these beads and I ordered SIX more strands before my other order arrived. If the appearance changes when stock is replenished a new stock photo of what you have should be taken to avoid confusion and disappointment. I prefer to not leave a bad review but this is what I received so I'm leaving this description to help other buyers. I did however… order just one of the lapis elephants to see if I liked it. I LOVE IT!
