1mm (estimated).

Defects:

The coating on Czech pearls is fairly thin, and I don't know how durable it is.  Also, inevitably a few pearls will be missing some coating around one of the holes (a common defect with Czech coated beads).  A few pearls may also have some anomalies in the coating, such as bumps, indentations or a bit of dirt.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

IMPORTANT:  The color of synthetically coated beads often changes with time.  In the case of these beads, they have become less orange and more yellow.  Now they look like a deep yellow (or perhaps gold) with a slight orange tinge.  Because of this tendency of synthetically coated beads to change color (the coating is, after all, a kind of paint), I have stopped ordering them.  I do, however, have a large stock to sell.  These beads should never lose ALL their color, so you needn't worry that they will become colorless.

Please note that non-synthetic coatings, such as picasso coatings, do not lose their color.  Only glass pearls and beads like these.
