The Veteran's Bead, made by Sunapee Graniteworks in New Hampshire, is dedicated to all the men and women who have served in the United States Military. Triangularly shaped, the bead is crafted from Triphylite, a bedrock discovered in the Palermo #1 Mine of North Groton, NH. This stone was selected because Palermo was a strategic mineral producer during World War II. The colors of the stone so beautifully depict the five branches of our military. The shape of the Veterans Bead is represents the military flag which pays tribute to American Patriot soldiers under George Washington and the shape of their hats. It takes thirteen folds to make the triangle and when complete, thirteen stars are evident, symbolizing the thirteen original colonies.
