5.8 cents

Bead material:

Glass

Country of origin:

Czech Republic

Size/shape:

6mm round (spherical).

Colors/description:

Glass beads (probably white) with a light green/blue coating and a mottled brownish-topaz coating on top of that.  These are luster beads, meaning that the finish is particularly shiny.  I don't know if the luster finish is a separate coating, or exactly how they achieve it.

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

The beads appear to be in good shape.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

The first batch of these beads had more obvious mottling than subsequent batches.  I liked the heavier mottling.  I am now getting these beads from two different sources.  Supplier E sells a bead which is a little more green than supplier M sells.  When I compare the beads, they look different to me; but when I photographed the beads from supplier M, the picture looked the same as the picture that was already posted.  Consequently, I am not selling the beads separately.  When the slightly more greenish beads from supplier E sell out, I will simply substitute the slightly more bluish beads from supplier M.

 

The original beads were mostly green with some blue and lavender, and then a heavier brown mottled coating.  The newer batches from both suppliers have less lavender in them, and the mottled brown coating is less heavy (making the beads slightly less beautiful, in my opinion).

 

Please note that the picture is a close-up.  When viewed with the eyes, the colors tend to meld together, making the beads look more homogenous.
