Glass

Czech Republic

Cubes with rounded edges and corners, approximately 3.5mm from hole to hole and 4mm from corner to corner.

Colors/description:

Glass beads (probably clear) with a bronze-colored coating.  I don't know if the coating is actual bronze, but it's possible since bronze is not particularly expensive.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

There are no significant defects, although if you look closely you might find some.  Very small beads always have some defects.

How photographed:

Between two daylight-balanced lamps.  Unfortunately, using lamps leaves two bright light spots on each bead.  New pictures were taken in August, 2016.

Comments:

I don't know if the surface is actually bronze, but it is probably some kind of metal.  I believe that the coating is fired onto the beads because I have never known it to come off).

 

When I restocked these beads in April, 2013, I discovered that the supplier's price had gone up, so I had to raise my price also.  The supplier is inconsistent in the way it prices bronze-colored beads.  Sometimes they make them expensive, and sometimes they make them cheap.  There's no logic to it.

To my eyes, the beads look somewhat yellow (meaning yellow-bronze).  However, the supplier's picture makes them look a little reddishHere is the supplier's picture for comparison:
