Price Per Lot: $5.00
Lots Available: 22
Style No. (bin): C034 (eia~)

Style: C034
Beads per lot: 5
Cost per bead: $1.00
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 15mm (from tip to tip) x 9mm (wide) crystal teardrops with the hole running sideways through the narrow end.  These are Preciosa-brand cut-crystal beads, not fire-polished beads.
Colors/description: Clear beads with a silver coating on about half of each bead.  The silver causes reflections of light inside the bead, so that you can see colors like blue and purple inside the beads on the uncoated side.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: These are high-quality cut-crystal beads.  Despite that, some beads may have a few small nicks at the edges of some facets.  (Unfortunately, the silver coating makes those nicks more visible.)  I am inspecting the beads individually, and I am eliminating beads that have larger nicks, but I am not eliminating beads that have very small nicks.  If you are dissatisfied with the beads, please contact me.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: These are leaded-glass beads, but they pose no hazard to anyone.  My picture really isn't the best.  When I took it, I didn't notice that most of the beads had their silver side facing the camera.  The colors that can be seen on the uncoated sides are quite lovely.
