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, deep or long 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, 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.

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

Important:  The picture shows the original batch of these beads.  The new batch has a much more distinct and "aggressive" picasso coating on the edges.  It is a mixture of black, tan and grayish green.  Also, the color of the glass is more variable than previous batches.  Some beads have odd swirls in the glass, or areas which are lighter than the rest of the bead.  In my opinion, previous batches of these beads were more pleasing.  When I have the time, I will take a new picture.

On the plus side, the sides or "windows" are flatter and more evenly polished.  However, there is a film on the beads which you must rub off; otherwise, they look a little dirty.
