Wheres a good website to buy semi-precious beads?

I’m looking for higher end semi-precious– precious gemstone beads at good prices… Examples are, prehnite, topazes, lemon quartz, sleeping beauty turquoise.. Preferable shapes like briolettes and faceted teardrops.. I’ve tried firemountain gems already their selection isn’t big for these and I’m not sure if they offer good prices for them…

BeadGal answers:

There had been questions that had been asks about cheap beads. When I checked it out I found this site

Just now I checked cheap beads and there are too many listed on Google for me to give to you and I really don’t know your finances or just exactly what you are looking for so my suggestion would be for you to list cheap beads in your search and hopefully you will find what you want. Hope this helps.
