Bead material:  Glass

Country of origin:  Czech Republic

Size/shape:  10mm (long) x 9mm (wide) x 7mm (thick) round beads with flat sides and faceted edges -- in other words, thick "coins" with faceted sides.

Colors/description:  Each bead is 1/2 translucent light blue and 1/2 translucent light topaz.
 
Hole size:  1mm (estimated).

Defects:  The picture revealed that a small number of beads have bubbles.  Otherwise, I haven't noticed any significant defects.  I personally don't mind the appearance of bubbles.  I'll be inspecting the beads individually, and I'll probably pass through beads with small, even bubbles, and eliminate beads with large or uneven bubbles.  (Less than 5% have bubbles.)  Please also note that fire-polished beads always have some imperfect facets.

How photographed:  At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:  I like the gentle colors in these beads.
