Style no.: G1208

Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic/China
Size/shape: 8mm round (spherical)
Colors/description: White beads with a sythetic (polymer-based) turquoise coating with dark-brown speckles.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: The beads appear to be in good shape.  The speckles aren't always distributed uniformly over the surface of a bead.
How photographed: Under two daylight-balanced lamps.  Note:  Using lamps leaves two bright spots on each bead -- especially on round beads -- but that can't be helped.  Also, the close-up shots may show defects that the human eye can't discern.
Comments: I first carried these beads in 2007.  When I reordered them a few years later, I decided my original pictures weren't accurate, so I set them aside and then forgot about them.  I came across them just recently, and now I'm posting them again in 2016.

I photographed the beads under very bright light.  Under normal light, the turquoise color looks much richer and more saturated.  Synthetically coated beads are known for losing their color over time; but I have had these beads for years, and the color looks just as intense as the day I bought them, so I don't think the color of these beads will fade.
