Bead material:

Glass

Country of origin:

China

Size/shape:

10mm coin-shaped (4mm thick).

Colors/description:

Translucent green with an "iris" coating.  Iris coatings are lustrous and reflect different colors.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

Some beads have flat spots on the edges, meaning that when you look at the bead from the side, it won't look perfectly round (if you look at the large picture, you'll see some examples).  I was, for a while, sorting such beads out, but that was too time-consuming so I simply lowered the price.  The beads were somewhat expensive to begin with.  Incidentally, you may find the odd-shaped beads usable.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

The iris coating isn't very visible, and it adds a lovely dimension to the beads.  Also, since all of the beads in the picture are flat, you can't see how interesting they are when viewed from other angles.  Please note that the green in the picture may be a little too dark; the actual beads are slightly lighter.
