At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

These beads appear to be made from what is called "end-of-day" glass, left-over glass from other pours.  Thus, the glass isn't as clean and pure as in most beads.  However, end-of-day glass has an artistic appearance that many people like.  Personally, I prefer mixed colors for dagger beads.
