Bead material:  glass

Country of origin:  Czech Republic

Size/shape:  8mm round, fluted (vertical grooves).

Colors/description:  Clear beads with a synthetic blue and green coating, with a silver AB coating on top of that.  AB (aurora borealis) coating reflect a rainbow of colors, although mostly they just look silver.

Comments:  Important:  The picture shows the old beads.  The new batch is made of a lighter blue glass, and as a result the green color is more prominent than it was before.  The new beads appear about 50% blue and 50% green, whereas the old batch was mostly a rich blue.  I will take a new picture when I have the time.
