Hi~
I am designing a necklace and need lots of untreated and unfaceted smooth light blue topaz beads.
And unfortunately, I cannot find any :(
There are lots of topaz beads on eBay but those are all treated or facted...could anyone please recommend any shops that might carry those? Thank you~

I think you will have to have them specialty cut. Natural blue topaz is quite rare and not cheap. Since it is also a light blue, unless you are cutting large beads, they will end up look white.

I contacted Doug from Bespoke gem...but he doesn't make beads...and I do not know anyone who cuts beads :(

curious as to why you require untreated?
I do not wear treated gems...
Have you considered aquamarine?
Sure~but I cannot find any round smooth aquamarines...any recommendation? Thank you :)

I've been to their website, the aquamarines are so beautiful...but they do not do retail they only do wholesale, and they only sell to people with California business license :(
