These beads are on 15 - 16 inch strands, temporarily strung,\
usually on monofilament (plastic fishline).
The holes are relatively small, standard, half a mm or so.
You won't be putting leather through them.
As with all the natural stones, color and "look" may differ
from strand to strand and even from bead to bead.
Shockingly, some of the stones are dyed.
Don't lick the garnets.
