5x6mm Turquoise Picasso Faceted Rosebud Beads [50]
Click to enlarge
Price Per Lot: $4.60
Lots Available: 10
Style No. (bin): F632 (cfa+e)

Style: F632
Beads per lot: 50
Cost per bead: 9.2 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 5mm (thick) x 6mm (wide) rosebud faceted beads with facets around the middle.
Colors/description: Greenish turquoise (opaque teal) with a yellowish-brown picasso coating over the entire bead; the coating is not as thick as on some other beads, so the turquoise glass is easy to see.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: Fire-polished beads always have some imperfect facets.  The picture also revealed a few beads with various anomalies (pits, for example), but the appearance of the beads is so complex that no one will notice.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: I have carried these beads in the larger size for a long time, so it was time to get the smaller size.  The size given above is approximate; I measured a couple beads, and they are slightly wider than 6mm.

I got a new batch in 2016.  They look slightly more green than my picture indicates.  Also, let me apologize for not having any close-up images.  I took the picture before I started adding close-up images to my listings.  Also, you should know that the supplier is phasing out all rosebud-shaped beads.
