Click to enlarge
Price Per Lot: $4.70
Lots Available: 10
Style No. (bin): G1799 (bma)

Style:  G1799
 
Cost per bead:  7.4 cents

Bead material:  Glass

Country of origin:  Czech Republic

Size/shape:  5mm (from hole to hole) x 6mm (wide) bell-flower-shaped beads with the hole through the center.

Colors/description:  Clear beads with a synthetic purple coating.  In some places, the coating is thin, so you can see into the bead; but I'm not counting that as a defect.
 
Hole size:  1mm (estimated).

Defects:  The beads appear to be in good shape (although, as noted above, the coating is thin in spots, which makes the beads semi-translucent in spots).  I don't know how durable the synthetic coating will be.

How photographed:  At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:  My camera, which is a compact camera (i.e., not a high-end camera), doesn't capture some colors very well.  In the case of these beads, they looked blue in the picture, so I had to adjust the color to purple in my photo-editing program.  I may not have gotten the color quite right.  To complicate matters, the beads can look more or less purple or blue depending on the light source.
