Defects:

I eliminate seriously defective beads before shipping.  I can't eliminate every bead which has a slight defect, so I use my judgement as to which defects are so serious that the bead can't be used.  Certainly, cracks, deep or long scratches, large pits, partially polished sides, large spots of picasso coating on the sides, and malformations are all enough for me to eliminate a bead.  But I may not eliminate a bead if it has very shallow scratches, small pits, or very small spots of picasso coating on the sides, or other small anomalies that don't ruin the overall appearance.  Translucent beads which have gotten picasso coating in the holes, so that the holes are dark, are not eliminated.  If you receive any beads with serious defects, that means that I overlooked them, and you should contact me for a pro-rated refund.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

These are certainly interesting beads.  The olive green color is murky, like a swamp, and the aqua color is pale and washed out.  I think the word "swamp" describes the color best.  These beads are for jewelry designers who like sophisticated or moody colors.  In bright light, the beads appear somewhat brighter.  Please note that although I call them 10mm beads, they are actually 10.5 mm, so they appear a bit larger than the other 10mm polished squares on the site.
