Decorate your jewelry designs with the gemstone style of these Dakota Stones beads. K2 is a stone recently discovered in the foothills of the mountain for which it is named, K2, in the Karakoram mountain range of Pakistan. It is a white granite with dark gray mottling that also exhibits blue or green spots, currently believed to be due to the presence of a copper-based mineral such as Malachite or Azurite. K2 is said to help one reach their highest consciousness and assist with grounding. Please be aware that K2 is sold untreated, and therefore contains unsealed granite. Unsealed granite may discolor when exposed to oil, chemicals, or dyes. A variety of granite sealing products are available online or through home improvement stores.
The beads on this strand can vary in size from about 9 x 12mm to 12 x 15mm.
Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead.
