Style No. (bin): R033 (aia+)

Style no.: R033
Beads per lot: 50
Cost per bead: 6 cents
Bead material: Ceramic
Country of origin: Not sure.
Size/shape: 6mm cube shaped (when measured corner-to-corner, the beads are larger).
Colors/description: White ceramic beads with a dark-red surface (probably dyed).  The surface of the beads is not shiny.
Hole size: 1mm to 1.5mm (estimated).
Defects: Ceramic beads are never perfect.  In this case, the red surface is lighter or darker on some beads.  Also, it can appear mottled.  In addition, I have noticed that not all beads are pefectly square.  However, the consistency is pretty good considering that these are probably hand-made beads.
How photographed: Under two daylight-balanced lamps.  The close-up shots may show defects that the human eye can't discern.
Comments: These beads are from my 1980's stash of beads, when I was making jewelry myself.  They are at least 35 years old, and possibly older.  My price of $3.00 for a lot of 50 isn't low (especially considering that I have no remembrance of what I paid for them), but I think that these are very good-quality rustic beads.  They were a favorite of mine back in the 1980's.

Caleb's notes: I probably got these from WEM, but I'm not sure.
