Size/shape: 6mm faceted beads with a molded pattern around the hole.  The supplier calls this shape "Renaissance".  It is similar to the cathedral shape.
Colors/description: Bright opaque red with a dark gray/blue/green picasso coating on the molded portions around the holes.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: I haven't noticed any significant defects.  However, fire-polished beads always have some imperfect facets.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: The picasso coating is applied before the beads are facetted.  The facetting process sometimes leaves bits of picasso coating between the facets, but I don't consider that to be a defect.  My camera made the beads look somewhat orange, so I had to adjust the color in my photo-editing program.  I don't think I got the red quite right, but it is close enough.  The actual beads are a very pleasing color.
