Style No.:

F178

Beads per lot:

50

Cost per bead:

5.8 cents

Bead material:

Glass

Country of origin:

Czech Republic

Size/shape:

6mm round, faceted, with a matte finish.  These are fire-polished beads, and all fire-polished beads have some imperfect facets.  However, the acid they use to make the surface matte sometimes washes some of the the defects away.

Colors/description:

Translucent teal (greenish aqua).  The supplier calls this emerald green, but I think it's teal.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

I haven't noticed any defects, although fire-polished beads usually have some imperfect facets.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

I am reposting these beads after a period of time.  My original picture made the beads look darker and much more blue, but I think that was because my camera didn't capture the color very well.  To make the picture look more correct, I lightened it and I shifted the color.  I didn't have the time to take a new photo.

These are matte beads, but the facets nonetheless have a little shine to them.  To make beads matte, they wash them in acid, but I guess they didn't leave them in the acid too long.  I like them with a little shine to the facets.
