Style: G1962
Beads per lot:
50
Cost per bead:
2
Bead material:
Glass
Country of origin:
Czech Republic
Size/shape:
6mm snail shell-shaped beads.
Colors/description:
Glass beads (probably white) with a lustrous very-light silvery blue synthetic coating.  The coating looks as much like silver as it does like blue.
Hole size:
1mm (estimated).
Defects: IMPORTANT:  Glass pearls that have any blue dye in the coating lose their blue color over time (this is something I didn't know when I bought these beads).  These beads have turned from a silvery blue to a silvery bluish-gray, and eventually the blue color will be completely gone.  I reduced the price by $2.50 per lot.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: For the reasons given in "Defects" above, I am no longer purchasing any pearls that contain blue dye in the coating.
