This lovely string of snowflake obsidian and sterling beads is an elegant piece. The snowflake obsidian beads are cylindrical in shape and have the most mesmerizing patterns. The round black obsidian beads are smooth, shiny, and a perfect complement to the snowflake obsidian. The natural stone beads are accented by small sterling beads. The lobster-claw clasp is marked 925 and its size is just perfect for the size of the beads. The small components that join the stringed beads to the jump ring at the clasp are marked stg, followed by a makers mark that looks like a b in a sideways triangle. A well-made, high-quality piece. Length is 27”; condition is excellent.
