Size/shape: 6mm (thick) x 9mm (wide) faceted rondelles.  A rondelle is any round bead which is wider than it is long.
Colors/description: A mix of translucent earthy colors:  very light topaz, light topaz, medium topaz, dark topaz, very dark topaz (almost black), light lime green, light spring green, light olive green, medium olive green, teal, light emerald green, dark emerald green, very dark emerald green (almost black).  The light topaz beads appears yellowish, the medium topaz beads appear orange, and the dark topaz beads appear brown.  The word "topaz" describes more of a color range than a particular color.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: The beads appear to be in good shape, but fire-polished beads always have some imperfect facets.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: The picture shows these beads lying flat; but once you string them, you will see them from their sides.  I probably should have strung up some so you could see them from the side, and I may still do that; however, most of my customers are familiar with the faceted rondelle shape and know what it looks like.

I can't remember when or where I bought these beads; I think I got them from supplier B, which is a high-priced supplier.  I can't remember what I paid for them, so I gave them a price that I thought was reasonable.
