Also known as Llanite Quartz or Llanite Blue Quartz.

These 100% natural Llanite Rhyolite beads have not been treated or enhances in any way.  

These Llanite Rhyolite beads are a Precambrian felsic extrusive rock found in Llano County of Central Texas and consists mainly of feldspar, blue quartz, and biotite, with trace amounts of several other minerals. 

Note: Matte beads have a tendency to 'dry' out and fade over time, resulting a dusty/chalky appearance. If receive a strand that looks dull, simply wipe a small amount of mineral oil on the beads with a cloth and they will darken in color to look like the photos. Skin oils will achieve this as well if you wear them regularly. This trick will work with almost all matte beads, just try it on a single bead first to ensure you are happy with the outcome.

Fascinating stuff

Just received mine and, yes, they looked a bit dry and dull. I was disappointed. BUT I gently wiped them with a cloth saturated with mineral oil and BANG! They came to life! They are some of the most fascinating stones I’ve ever worked with. These were loaded with blue quartz and were stunning.

4mm Matte beads

Beautiful, good quality beads. Awesome price and fast shipping. Great communication
What more could you want! Highly recommend.


I am very pleased with my selection.
Since I am a maker and designer of rosaries I wold really appreciate a bead count of 60 on a strand in the 8 mm size.

Another great stone

Thank you for carrying this strand of beads. Relatives in Llano TX have sent me pieces of this rock and always hoped to find some beads of this material. Thank you so again. I love them


Extremely high quality, stunning beads. I love their transparency about any treatments to the stones. I'm never disappointed with my orders!

Not as glossy as photo

The photo of these appears more glossy than the actual stone. I am aware that this is Matte, but the photo suggests they would be more glossy. However, for the price, no complaint.

Matte stones have a tendency to dry out over time resulting in a less vibrant or 'chalky' appearance. If you want to liven them up a bit, wipe on a little mineral oil with a cloth and it will darken the color and make the stone's natural features pop as shown in the photos. Skin oil will do the same if worn frequently. We hope that helps!
