Bead material:

Glass

Country of origin:

Czech Republic or India (not sure).

Size/shape:

Flat teardrops that have been twisted, a little like a potato chip.  They are between 24mm and 26mm (some may be slightly shorter or longer).  They are 10mm to 12mm wide.  They are 4mm thick, not counting any thickness added by twisting.

Colors/description:

Translucent dark amethyst, lime green and sapphire blue on the tip; these are hand-made lampwork beads.

Hole size:

1.75mm to 2mm (estimated).

Defects:

Being hand-made beads, they vary slightly in size from one to the next.  I have noticed some bubbles in the glass, but I don't count bubbles as defects in lampwork beads (they are inevitable).  Beads with more serious defects are eliminated before shipping.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

These are gorgeous beads, and I feel fortunate to have gotten them at a good price.  However, they have a rustic quality and might not mix with more perfectly made beads.  Without a doubt, they should make good earrings.  If you buy more than one, I will do my best to match them in appearance.
