Click to enlarge
Price Per Lot: $3.00
Lots Available: 46
Style No. (bin): G2345 (akas+e)

Style: G2345
Beads per lot: 25
Cost per bead: 12 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 8mm round with 3 facets or "cuts" around the middle.
Colors/description: Translucent bright red with a mottled gray, grayish blue and grayish olive "picasso" coating on the round portions.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: At least one facet on each bead is imperfect.  These are fire-polished beads and the facet which was facing downward during the fire-polishing facet is not perfectly flat and smooth.  The surface on most of the defective facets appear to be matte.  The imperfections are not noticeable unless you look at the beads closely.  I have lowered the price 40 cents per lot because of the defects.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: Because the beads were lying on a surface, the brightness of the inner glass can't be seen.  I tried taking a picture of the beads from an angle, but the pictures came out blurry.  The inner glass is a bright, rich red.

The one bad facet on each bead (see "Defects" above) is unfortunate, but the picasso coating is very nice.
