Lots Available: 20
Style No. (bin): G2282 (cwa+e)

Style no.: G2282
Beads per lot: 50
Cost per bead: 6 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 6mm bicones.  A bicone is like two pyramids attached at their bases, with the hole running through the center.
Colors/description: Opalescent white.  The amount of white in the glass varies slightly from one bead to the next.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: The picture revealed that about a half-dozen beads have dirt in the glass.
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: Aside from the few beads that have dirt in the glass, the beads are very nice.  Good opalescent beads should have a minimum of white in them; otherwise, they just look milky.  However, I have also noticed that most opalescent beads give off yellow light, and these beads don't, and I don't know why.  Nonethless, I think the beads have just enough white in them.

Regarding my picture, I really need to get a gray background to photograph white beads on.  Photographing white beads on a white plate just doesn't work.
