Matte gemstones look unpolished and have a softer appearance. In fact, it takes longer to craft matte beads as they require additional tumbling to get this “frosted” surface. The description we landed on is that they feel almost velvety.
Some of your favorite stones will look different, such as matte rose quartz which is a lovely pastel color you may find more appealing. They can be paired with softer fibers, light colored suedes and other stringing materials.
