Defects:

I eliminate seriously defective beads before shipping.  I can't eliminate every bead which has a slight defect, so I use my judgement as to which defects are so serious that the bead can't be used.  Certainly, cracks, scratches, large pits, partially polished sides, large spots of picasso coating on the sides, and malformations are all enough for me to eliminate a bead.  But I may not eliminate a bead if it has very shallow scratches (so shallow that it's hard to see), small pits, or very small spots of picasso coating on the sides, or other small anomalies that don't ruin the overall appearance.  Translucent beads which have gotten picasso coating in the holes, so that the holes are dark, are not eliminated.  If you receive any beads with serious defects, that means that I overlooked them, and you should contact me for a pro-rated refund.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.  The picture is old.

Comments:

Every time I restock these beads, the color of the glass and the coating changes, and I simply cannot re-photograph them every time.  For a long time I was giving customers a choice of two beads, one which was slightly greener, and one which was slightly bluer.  The greener beads have sold out, and now I have the ones which are slightly bluer.  That doesn't mean they are blue; they are definitely turquoise, but just slightly bluer than the ones that sold out.  Personally, I always preferred the bluer ones.  Please note that the beads are not quite as richly colored as the picture indicates.  (That picture is old, and the colors are over-saturated.)
