Orange? Fuhgetaboutit! This is a gorgeous strand of what COULD be mistaken for faceted turquoise! That's what they look like, they even appear to have some matrix or veining which adds such beauty. My strand had tons of "aqua". The "orange is not bright, more like a desert orange with wonderful variegation of tans, brown & aqua in them & still great bling factor. This is the new "in" color in many bead magazines. Very unique. Try a strand, I bet you'll love them.
