Lots Available: 32
Style No. (bin): G2306 (bca+j)

Style no.: G2306
Beads per lot: 25
Cost per bead: 15.2 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 8mm round (spherical)
Colors/description: The underlying glass appears to be chartreuse to me (light yellow-green).  There seem to be two mottled "picasso" coatings on the beads.  The first is a dark-brown; over that is a lighter coating with muted colors such as beige, light blue, light green and pink.  The lighter picasso coating is quite subtle, and to the naked eyes the colors just mentioned are not very apparent.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: The picture revealed that some beads may not be perfectly round.  Some portions of the beads look a little flat (but not totally flat).  But to the casual observer, the beads simply look round.  If anything, the slight unevenness of the beads gives them a slightly baroque appearance.
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: Most of what I have to say about the beads has been said above.  The supplier says that the underlying color of the glass is beige, but it appears chartreuse to me.  The use of two picasso coatings is common for this manufacturer.  It makes for a more interesting appearance than if the bead simply had a dark-brown mottled coating.

The beads are from my supplier of premium beads, which is why the price is high.
