A: The fact that they are not dyed means they are their natural color. Many people do not like dyed gemstones because they fear the color may rub off. Stabilized gemstones are those that have been treated with resin or some other hardening material during the production process; stabilization makes soft stones harder and more durable. For more information about this, please see the article about gemstone beads at the bottom of our gemstone beads page.
