Price listed is for each set of beads. These are black semi-precious beads that, when strung together, measure about 5.5'' long. Each set contains 5 beads. They are double-drilled and have thin blue, red, and gray stripes of a natural material embedded on the front. These will come strung together with plastic cord; you will want to cut them apart and use your own beading cord or thread. Each bead appears hand cut, so there will be some slight variation. We're not sure what exactly these are made from. They feel like acrylic, but have a grain like a natural material.
