3.5mm (long) x 4mm (wide) faceted bicones.
Coral (opaque) medium pink.  If you look very closely at the beads, you will see that some of them have slightly lighter swirls of pink in them.  That is not by design; rather, the glass appears to be a mixture of pink and white glass, and they may not have mixed it thorughly.  This is a common "defect" of opaque Czech beads, but I don't really view it as a defect because the effect is often very nice.
Hole size:
1mm (estimated).
Defects: The beads appear to be in good shape.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: These are Preciosa cut crystal beads, not fire-polished beads.  These beads are the Czech equivalent of Swarovski beads.  The facets of these beads are much more perfect than you will find on fire-polished beads.

They don't make these beads in many opaque colors.  I intend to eventually get all of the opaque colors available.
