I just recieved a strand of these a couple days ago inside my free grab bag! Since they were a surprise I am not quite sure yet what I will do .. the possibilities are endless. The size is perfect for just about anything. The color is a deep red with dark veins. I think a 4 piece set is in order - ring, bracelet, necklace and earrings. I just have to figure out what they will look like. I am definitely going to have some fun with them.
