12mm flat rectangles with polished "windows".


Translucent alexandrite with swirls of white in it.  Depending on the light source, alexandrite is rosy pink, violet or light blue.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).


These beads are not as well-polished as the other polished beads that I carry, meaning that not all the windows are very shiny.  I am eliminating the worst of the dull beads, but you'll still get some that are not as polished as they should be.


Before shipping, I eliminate beads with cracks, deep or long scratches, partially polished windows, large pits, dirt spots, and large bubbles in the glass.  However, I don't count very small pits, small nicks, or very shallow scratches that are hard to see as defects.  I don't eliminate beads with rough or frosty-looking holes running through them.  If you receive any beads with serious defects, that means that I overlooked them and you should contact me for a partial refund.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.


The picture above is a little deceptive.  It is midway between what the beads look like in fluorescent light (very light bluish violet) and what the beads look like in daylight (a deeper rosy violet).  Overall, these beads have a richer color than most other alexandrite beads I carry.
