Size/shape:
7mm round (spherical).  The beads are a little squat, so from hole to hole, they measure a little less.
Colors/description:
Opaque light baby blue which, in some kinds of light, looks a little aqua.  When viewed close up, a swirl pattern can be seen in the glass.  The finish on these beads is what I call "buff" -- not as shiny as glass beads usually are, but exactly matte either.
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 a few are malformed.  Also, many of them have pits.  Altogether, I would say that the percentage of defective beads doesn't exceed 10%.  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: The supplier calls these beads "turquoise", and they do look a little like bluish turquoise.  However, to my eyes they look more blue than aqua, so I am calling them blue.

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.
