Click to enlarge
Price Per Lot: $2.80
Lots Available: 56
Style No. (bin): F693 (cbas4~j)

Style: F693
Beads per lot: 40
Cost per bead: 8.4 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 8mm round, faceted.
Colors/description: White with sapphire blue 'tiger stripes'.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: The beads appear to be in good shape, although fire-polished beads always have some imperfect facets.  In this case, the facets seem to be well-formed.  I did notice that about 5% of the beads have some orange in them.  My guess is that they made the orange beads first, and then made the blue beads, and some of the color spilled over from one batch to the next.  (I also carry the orange beads.)
How photographed: Between two daylight-balanced lamps.
Comments: The blue in the actual beads is a slightly richer color than the picture shows (meaning that they look better than the picture).  I am a sucker for stripes, so I grabbed these beads when I saw them.  I got a good price on them too.  Please note that the beads are being sold in lots of 40 because they come strung that way.
