Lots Available: 7
Item No. (bin): F121 (ala+)

Cost per bead:

14 cents

Bead material:

Glass

Country of origin:

Czech Republic

Size/shape:

7mm x 8mm "rosebud" faceted – this bead is molded in a rosebud shape with facets around the middle of the bead.

Colors/description:

Translucent red with a silvery luster coating; I am certain that the coating is fired onto the beads, so it should be durable.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

The beads appear to be in good shape, although fire-polished beads do not always have perfect facets.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

The coating on these beads isn't just lustrous, it is silvery.  The supplier calls it a "vega" coating.  These beads look much darker than other Siam ruby beads I have gotten, perhaps because of the coating.
