Verner: A Verrry Special Bracelet- African Jade/Verdite by BOYBEADS

Yes, all of our bracelets are special because they are made to order right here in our New York studio for each customer. Each bead on each bracelet is hand-selected from a bowl of over 500 beads, of which only the highest quality contenders are selected. I like to think of it as a beauty contest amongst the beads. It is a great honor to be selected and proudly displayed on the wrist of a customer who is happy to have you in their collection.

Verdite/African Jade
Verdite is a variety of muscovite, a South African stone dating back millions of years. It gets its natural green hue from the presence of chromium in its environment. 
South Africans have used this stone to carve important cultural artworks for many centuries. They are highly collectible and can fetch thousands of dollars at auction.
