Style No. (bin): F392 (cna~e)

Style no.:

F392

Beads per lot:

25

Cost per bead:

11.8 cents

Bead material:

Glass

Country of origin:

Czech Republic

Size/shape:

8mm round, faceted.

Colors/description:

White beads with a green mottled luster coating.  I see light aqua under the coating, so the beads may have been coated three times, first with light aqua, then with green, and then with a mottled brown luster coating (but that's just a guess).  The coatings are not synthetic.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

The beads appear to be in good shape, but fire-polished beads always have some imperfect facets.  In fact, when examining the batch purchased in December, 2013, I noticed that many facets have shallow grooves in them, which is an indication that they were faceted with worn blades.  Nonetheless, they look good to me.

How photographed:

The picture was taken by the supplier.

Comments:

I have photographed these beads twice, and each time my picture came out looking dull and uninteresting (including the picture I am currently using).  They are far more lustrous and beautiful than the picture indicates.  Here is the supplier's picture, which is better:
