This necklace is made up of graduated malachite beads. The different shades of green are incredible. In between each bead are three translucent green seed beads. There is no clasp as it easily slips over the head. The largest bead measures 21mm and the smallest 8.5mm. The beads are not perfectly round as they are hand carved. The large center bead has a fracture through it. Other beads have pitting and shallow chips. It is quite heavy measuring 8.8 ounces.
