Style no.: G2271

Cost per bead: 2.53 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: China
Size/shape: 4mm (from hole to hole) x 4.5mm (wide) "chubby" round beads.
Colors/description: Opaque white beads that appear to be very slightly translucent or milky.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: The beads appear to be in good shape.
How photographed: Under two daylight-balanced lamps.  Note:  Using lamps leaves two bright spots on each bead -- especially on round beads -- but that can't be helped.  Also, the close-up shot may show defects that the human eye can't discern.
Comments: These are Chinese beads.  To my eyes, they look opaque, but I can also see a hint of milkiness in them, which means they have a bit of translucence to them.  They are different from Czech beads in that they are "chubby", being slightly wider than they are long.

There is a back story to these beads.  I believed I had posted them, but apparently hadn't, and for more than a year I kept wondering why they weren't selling.  I finally realized that it was the 6mm white beads I had posted and not these.

For reasons I don't understand, the beads come on strands of 79 beads each, so that is the way I am selling them.
