1mm (estimated).

Defects:

The beads seem to be in good shape.  However, I haven't noticed any of the finish coming off.  Unlike many other Czech finishes, picasso finishes are not fired onto the bead surface, so I don't know how durable they are.  (The coating on picasso beads is more like a stain than a coating.)

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

  To give you a different perspective on the beads, here is the supplier's picture:

Important:  The latest batch of these beads has a lighter picasso coating than the beads in the picture (the supplier's picture is pretty good, but mine is old and too dark).  Many years ago I bought a batch of these beads that appeared to have a real silver-based picasso coating, and they were beautiful.  The coating on these beads isn't as spectacular, but it is nice enough.  When I have the opportunity, I will take new pictures of the batch I have now.
