Defects:

I eliminate seriously defective beads before shipping.  I can't eliminate every bead which has a slight defect, so I use my judgement as to which defects are so serious that the bead can't be used.  Certainly, cracks, deep or long scratches, large pits, partially polished sides, large spots of picasso coating on the sides, and significant malformations are all enough for me to eliminate a bead.  But I may not eliminate a bead if it has very shallow scratches, small pits, or very small spots of picasso coating on the sides, or other small anomalies that don't ruin the overall appearance.  If you receive any beads which you find unacceptable, please contact me for a pro-rated refund.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

These beads are similar to the G1706 beads, but they are considerably darker.  They are more "rustic" in appearance than most polished beads, although they are not as rustic as my picture makes them look.  My picture doesn't show how smooth the surface of the beads is.  Also, it makes the beads look like they have a lot of speckly defects, but I don't see that with my eyes.
