I actually bought two shapes of this stone - this one (round), and a rectangular one. I made a Kumihimo braid of the black and turquoise 1 mm leather, and needed a pendent to match. The color of this stone is very beautiful and can be shown on a simple chain, no additional embellishments needed. I am glad I discovered it - I would not if I did not look for a match to my braid. It's bright enough, color tone is lovely, and I will buy more when I use these two.
