SINGLE SKULL STRETCH BRACELET WITH 10MM POLISHED BLACK ONYX, LAPIS LAZULI, SODALITE, LABRADORITE AND BLUE AGATE BEADS

Natural Stone Beaded Bracelet (Shop Now)

Our most popular category, this has to be the top of our list.  With over 20 varieties of natural stones and dozens of styles, you can't go wrong with natural stones.  The top selling men's natural stones are Tiger Eye and Red Tiger Eye with their natural chatoyancy, which is an optical effect in which a band of light is reflected in certain gemstones, creating an appearance similar to light bouncing off a cat's eye.

Black Onyx is always a top choice for men, and we offer many options in both Polished Black Onyx and Matte Black Onyx natural stones.  Black Onyx, also sometimes called Black Agate, comes in a variety of designs and styles and is used heavily as an accent stone in our very popular Black Steel, Black Leather and Natural Stone Bracelet collection

Very popular for men are the hues of blues.  There are so many choices when it comes to blue natural stones, from the light Tiffany-colored blue of natural Turquoise, to Blue Banded Agate with it's vibrant color contrasted against white lines.  Lapis Lazuli has a deep dark blue background mixed with dashes of lighter royal blues, while Sodalite features a more royal blue with hazy white striations which remind me of clouds dashing across a blue sky.  Recently we have seen variations in Tiger's Eye to give us a variety of Blue Tiger Eye designs from midnight blue, to a royal blue and aqua colored peacock blue colors, all with the chatoyancy you love from the original Tiger's Eye.
