? Purple Something-Or-Other ?

Today's purply-metallic-dichroic bead is sort of unusual in shape, but the color is cool and maybe a little mysterious... I am thinking this would make a fun focal bead in a bracelet as long as the rest of the piece has other dark beads and is just a tad off kilter with lots of dangles and crazy things on it.

What do you think? I'm interested in your thoughts on what this shape represents.

Have a great evening everyone!

It is... molten lava with flecks of mica?

Do you know what this bead is made of/called? Does it feel hard and clacky or hard and plasticy? I got a set of 12 vintage beads that look like this material and LOVE them, but have never been able to find anything similar.

Hello! I hope you return to this site for a response, I wasn't able to email you directly. This is a glass bead that I bought in a package from Joann, Etc. It was part of a bead mix. I believe there is a website named on the package. I can check the next time I'm at Joann's if you would like. I didn't save the package. Take care, Lisa C.

Lisa, thank you so much for responding to me. No need to go out of your way. I'll look it up at Joann myself. It was just a relief to see that this material is out there. Thank you again! :) E
