Price Per Lot: $3.60
Lots Available: 9
Style No. (bin): G1880 (cha+)

Style:  G1880
 
Beads per lot:  25

Cost per bead:  14.4 cents

Bead material:  Glass

Country of origin:  Czech Republic

Size/shape:  8mm round with three "cuts" or facets around the middle.  The beads are fire-polished.

Colors/description:
  Translucent light teal or aqua, with a light-brown mottled "picasso" coating on the curved portions of the beads.  The picasso coating is not heavy, and you can see through it to a certain extent.
 
Hole size:  1mm (estimated).

Defects:  I haven't noticed any significant defects.  However, fire-polished beads always have some imperfect facets (although the facets on these beads look better than other 3-cut beads I've seen).

How photographed:  At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:  At first these beads didn't "work" for me, but they are growing on me.  I originally thought that the picasso coating should be darker and more dense, but then I realized that the teal color would be drowned out.  The overall effect of the colors is "delicate".  Regarding the color of the glass, it appears to be half-way between teal and aqua, so the beads could be called either one.
