Price Per Lot: $3.00
Lots Available: 32
Style No. (bin): F577 (dxa+e)

Style: F577
Beads per lot: 25
Cost per bead: 12 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 6mm (thick) x 9mm (wide) faceted rondelles (rondelles are round beads which are wider than they are long).  This shape is called the "gemstone" shape by many other sellers.
Colors/description: A mixture of translucent colors (ruby red, cobalt blue, light aqua, light green, dark amethyst purple, brown, clear) with a light-brown mottled "picasso" coating on the smooth portions of the beads 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: This is an interesting mixture of colors.  The picasso coating is not as dark or heavy as it is on other similar beads I have carried.  Please note that the light-aqua beads are lighter and paler (i.e., they have less color) than the picture shows.  Important:  The proportion of colors changes from one strand to the next; you may get more of one color than other colors.

These beads were very popular, so I restocked them in April, 2015.
