Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 8mm (long and wide) x 3mm (thick) coin-shaped beads with the hole running through the length.
Colors/description: Opaque red beads with a mottled "picasso" coating that contains the colors brown, tan and gray.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: Using a magnifying glass I found a variety of minor defects (an occasional pit, dent, fissure or bump), but almost none of them can be seen by the naked eye.  However, I am inspecting the beads individually before shipping, so beads with significant defects will be eliminated.
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 bought these beads from my supplier of premium Czech beads.  At 16 cents each, they aren't expensive enough to put in my Premium category, but I decided to do that anyway -- because of price pressures from China, bead prices seem to be falling).  I think they are attractive beads.  Please note that the red color of the glass isn't quite accurate in my picture, but it is close.
