Comments:

I have bought these beads many, many times, and they always look about the same.  In this instance, the picasso coating is a mixture of gray and olive green  with a little blue.  In the past, I've gotten these beads that had only gray in the coating.  The beads pictured are an old batch.

Date first posted: December, 2006
Supplier: E, C
Caleb's notes: The first batch from E was dull and heavily scuffed with fine scratches.  The second batch had deep scratches across about 20% of the beads (heaven knows what they were doing to them!).  The first batch from C appears much more perfect; however, they are a bit thinner and have a darker, less interesting picasso coating.  The batches purchased from E in 2011 and 2015 were in good shape.
