Trollbeads Limited Edition Ocean Jasper and Pastel Agates

Over the past few days, rumours have been circulating of Limited Edition stones, thought only to have been made available to some Danish retailers.  Diamonds4Ever and Perlen are two Danish retailers receiving stock. Following an announcement on their Facebook page yesterday, it appears that Trollbeads Heaven in the UK have also been offered some stock.

These new Limited Edition stones are said to be Ocean Jasper and Pastel Agate.

From the images I have seen so far, Ocean Jasper is a neutral coloured bead with a marbled pattern that looks like bubbles blown through a straw. Ocean Jasper also made an appearance in the 2011 Limited Edition Gemstone set, though images for those beads showed less marbling.

The pastel Agates look to be available in pink, blue, green and brown. The depth of colour looks to vary quite immensely, as does the opaque patterning in the stone, which reminds me of the flower mosaic beads. This is typical of most natural stones.

Thank you to Diamonds4Ever who have kindly sent me these lovely close up pictures of individual beads (Pink Pastel Agate, Green Pastel Agate, Blue Pastel Agate, Ocean Jasper paler version, Ocean Jasper darker version). They have however said that they all sold out almost immediately!

These will definitely be going on my wish list!

I will update this post if I become aware of any other UK retailers being offered stock of the beads or further stock being allocated to European retailers.
