Lots Available: 33
Style No. (bin): G2079 (axa+m)

Style: G2079
Beads per lot: 25
Cost per bead: 16 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 8mm round with 3 facets or "cuts" around the middle.
Colors/description: Opaque bright orange with a mottled grayish-brown "picasso" coating on the round portions.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: Some slight imperfections can be seen in the facets (specifically, shallow ridges can be seen on some facets), but that is normal for Czech faceted beads. I also noticed an occasional nick or small pit.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: These beads are every bit as bright as the picture indicates.  These 3-cut beads have deeper "cuts" than other 3-cut beads that I have carried in the past, so they appear triangular when looked at from above.

These beads are from a new supplier that has higher prices than the suppliers I was using before, so my price is pretty high.  However, I feel that the quality is better.  Despite what I say under "Defects" above, I feel that these beads are a cut above the other 3-cut beads that I have carried before.
