Lots Available: 7
Style No. (bin): G1569 (dqa~e)

Cost per bead:

8.6 cents

Bead material:


Country of origin:

Czech Republic


12mm (from end to end) leaves, with the hole through one end.  The leaves are about 4mm thick.


Clear beads with a brownish gold-luster "celsian" coating (see my comments below).  Celsian coatings are made of glass and, I believe, are heat-sealed (fire-polished) to the bead.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).


The beads appear to be in good shape.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.


My picture isn't very accurate.  The light wasn't reflecting off the surface of the leaves, so it's impossible to see the gold luster coating.  In the photo, they just look topaz, but that isn't accurate.  Ordinarily, celsian coatings are applied to just part of a bead.  In this case, the coating covers the entire bead.
