7mm-wide bell-shaped flowers with the hole running sideways through the tapered back of the flower.  In other words, these flowers are button-shaped with a flower for the face.  They are 5mm from front to back.

Milky light aqua with a luster coating.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

The beads appear to be in good shape, although an occasional bead is missing a petal (I'm not sure what percentage, but it seems to be small).  The missing petals didn't break off.  Rather, it appears that the mold was defective.  (In the lower-right of the thumbnail picture, you can see such a bead.)

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

I originally photographed these beads loose on a plate, so that some of them were upside down showing the backs of the beads.  But the picture was too confusing because the beads were lying every which way.  So I re-took the photo with the beads strung on a hank.

The picture makes the beads look a little more blue than they actually are.  To my eyes, the color in the picture isn't quite aqua enough (but it's close).

Caleb's notes: I got these during a 40% sale at the supplier.  At my normal discount, these beads are too expensive to restock.
