Size/shape:  6mm round with molded triangular facets.  "English cut" beads in the 4mm size tend to look like bicones, but in this size they look more round.

Hole size:  1mm (estimated).

Defects:  These beads are very "rough".  The molded facets are not smooth or perfect in any way.  For more, please see the comments below.

How photographed:  At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:  These beads are not well finished at all.  The molded facets are very rough.  They should only be used in casual jewelry.  The reason the price isn't lower is that I got them from an expensive supplier.  I purchased them from looking at pictures and couldn't see that they weren't well finished.  They definitely have a cheap feeling to them.  Added later:  Despite being a poorly finished, "English cut" beads in general have sold very well, so I expect to carry more of them.  I'm not sure what the appeal is, but a lot of people like them.
