Defects:

These are Indian beads, and they have a rustic appearance.  I have noticed the following problems:  Some beads are lighter or darker than others.  Some beads are perfectly oval (football-shaped), while others are a more squat (meaning that some beads have flat ends).  Some beads have a mild beige mottling on part of the bead, or they have dark spots.  Please note that I eliminated some defective beads while I was packaging these beads, and I also included one extra bead in each lot.

Comments:

Indian beads are always more rustic than Czech beads, but I personally like that look, which is why I get them.  Indian beads are best used in informal jewelry.  These beads are a favorite of mine.  When I reposted the beads in March, 2016, I was able to reduce the price by 70 cents because the supplier's price had dropped.  My picture is old and somewhat dark.
