Opaque grayish lavender.  When viewed close up, a swirl pattern can be seen in the glass.
Hole size:
1.5mm (estimated).
Defects: Indian beads are rarely perfectly formed and shaped, and these are no different.  Some are a little smaller than 7mm and some are a little bigger, and a few are malformed.  Also, a few have pits.  When I notice defects, I remove the defective beads, but I don't always notice them (inspecting every bead isn't possible).  Because of the defects, I set the price fairly low.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: Every once in a while I get Indian beads because they have a different quality from Czech beads.  These beads are fairly plain, but I still like them.  I purchased two lavender colors, and this one is the darker (the other is G2019).  These beads have a slightly milky quality, whereas the G2019 beads are completely opaque.
