Love that I could find authentic Azurite beads in the 8mm size at a cost effective price. Holes were drilled pretty much true to size. Each strand will make almost 2 bracelets at the average 7 inch size. These are even more beautiful in person and exactly what I ordered. Great quality, especially for the price. PLEASE offer those of us in Hawaii a more affordable shipping option for the future. Since shipping does not relate to the gemstones I am still leaving a 5 star rating. The product is exactly as described and Azurite not only urges the soul towards enlightenment, but it also is known for its healing properties when it comes to: throat problems, arthritis and joint issues, aligning the spine and heals the kidneys, liver, gallbladder, spleen, thyroid, bones, teeth and skin while encouraging the development of a fetus in the womb. I like to recommend this stone to friends who become pregnant to assist with the development of their baby and hopefully help prevent any unfortunate events.
