Hello! Today's bead looks very impressive. If you are wondering if this is true cinnebar, I must admit that it is not. Once again, this is a very well done plastic bead.

The shape and design of this bead has been made to resemble Cinnebar which is wood from the cinnebar tree of Southeast Asia. The products you can buy today that are made of actual cinnebar wood, including beads, are made by pressing a pattern into the wood. The color is then enhanced with a resin to give it stability as the wood is very soft.

This tone of red looks great with turquoise and black.

Happy beading!!
