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.

I'm not sure if the amethyst color and copper color are sprayed onto the beads separately or in one spray.  The supplier calls the metallic color "copper", but to me it looks more bronze or gold.  Since there is a bit of reddishness to the bronze, I kept the word "copper" in the title.  (Please note that these are metallic coatings, not synthetic coatings.)  These are very small beads, and the pictures are enlargements (showing you more detail than you can see with your eyes).
