Hi Beth I can't say for sure about emerald beads, but while in Tucson
I was looking for tanzanite and ruby beads. I found a US dealer
"American Raw Materials Mgt., Inc. They are located in Lilburn GA,
outside of Atlanta. Arun was very helpful to me in determining both
the quality and price I needed for my project. You can call
770-696-5321 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org Good luck.

predicted for the weekend.
