Price per Lot: $4.00
Lots Available: 12
Item No. (bin): G1745 (prc~)

Cost per bead:

40 cents

Bead material:

Glass

Country of origin:

Czech Republic

Size/shape:

8mm (from hole to hole) x 12mm (wide) 3-petal flowers with grooves on the sides and the hole through the middle of the flower.

Colors/description:

Opaque turquoise (light teal or greenish-aqua) with a mottled brown "picasso" coating.  I also see a coral red coating in the center of some of the flowers, and in the grooves on some of the flowers, but not in all of them.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

The pictures revealed that many of the beads have small fissures in the centers of the flowers.  Flowers like this often have small fissures; but the fissures don't seem to affect the strength of the bead, and they aren't visible to the naked eye (unless you look hard for them), so I haven't reduced the price.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

Turquoise picasso beads are always popular.
