Click to enlarge
Price per Lot: $3.30
Lots Available: 4
Item No. (bin): G1401 (doa)

Cost per bead:

6.6 cents

Bead material:

Glass

Country of origin:

Czech Republic

Size/shape:

6mm round (spherical).

Colors/description:

Glass beads (white or clear) with a hematite-colored synthetic coating.  Hematite is the same as the "gunmetal gray" color.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

The coating on Czech pearls is fairly thin, and I don't know how durable it will be.  Also, inevitably a few pearls will be missing some coating around one of the holes (a common defect with Czech coated beads).  A few pearls may also have some anomalies in the coating, such as bumps, indentations or a bit of dirt.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

Hematite pearls are more lustrous and look less like real metal than either real hematite beads or hematite-coated glass beads.  Please note the price recently went up by 70 cents per lot because the supplier raised its price.  Also, when I bought them in 2008, I got them on sale.

 

I have posted an earlier picture and a more recent picture.  The picture in which the beads look more silvery is the older picture.  I think the newer picture is more accurate.
