Black Pearl Granite B
The Beads of New Hampshire: Black Pearl Granite were the second bead in the American Bead Collection and come from the Sunapee Graniteworks Quarries In Sunapee, NH. Black Pearl has a rich history in Sunapee since it was quarried in Sunapee Harbor in the 1800's. Once they no longer quarried it, it was forgotten about and then considered a "lost granite" until Bill Stocker and his sons rediscovered it on their land. The Black Pearl makes a beautiful bead with a universal sized sterling core.
Beads are sold individually.
