The Cornelian Star is a new type of Czech seed bead that has been released by Preciosa Ornela to rave reviews!  This seed bead features an opaque white starburst emanating from the center hole of the bead.  

What makes this seed bead unique is not only its unique center star design, but also the fact that it is a combination of transparent and opaque glass.  The round hole has an intermediate layer of chalk white glass in the shape of a 6 pointed star set in transparent glass.  The points of the chalk white star center filter through the transparent glass that surrounds it and the shadows that result gives the impression of fine stripes.

Cornelian Star Seed Beads are available in 8 colors:

Each color is available in 2 sizes: 6/0 (approx. 4mm) and 32 (approx. 7.5mm).
