Size/shape: 12mm (wide) x 7mm (deep) flowers with three ridges sticking out which represent three petals.  The hole runs through the center of the flower.

Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: A close examination with the magnifying glass didn't reveal any defects at all -- how nice!
How photographed: Under two daylight-balanced lamps.
Comments: These are premium beads from my supplier of premium beads, which is why they are so costly.  The 3-petal flowers from this supplier have a slightly different shape than the 3-petal flowers from the supplier that I identify as "E".  These flowers have more pronounced "petals" (protrusions), whereas the petals on the flowers from E are more subtle.  Both types are nice.

I have seen this combination -- turquoise with purple mottling -- before, and I like it.  However, in this case the purple color is not very strong.  Even so, I think these are very handsome beads.

One other notable thing:  Most of the 3-petal flowers from this supplier are 8mm deep.  I don't know why these beads are more shallow, only 7mm.  The shallower depth means that if you string several in a row, they sit together more snugly, as you can see in the picture.
