    That color looks like a beautiful amethyst purple. Just glorious! Are you bringing it home with you?

      not for sale - but I have a customer looking for something similar, so I'll be looking through their lots hunting him down something similar in color, hopefully!

        i Have some bead nuked lavenders that look great. They have some blemish in close up examination, but were not expensive. We sell them in our etsy and ebay shops. I cut one in half with a dremel cut off wheel and found that the nacre is quite thick. I separated the nacre from the bead and found a banded shell nucleus simiiler to the one used for shell pearls, and to nucleus South Sea pearls. They are a consistent 9.5mm in diameter.Click image for larger version

          I'm sure those sell well. I love lavender-colored pearls.
