How photographed:  At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:  I struggled with whether to call these "bronze-luster" or "gold-luster" beads.  "Bronze" implies a yellowish color, although bronze doesn't always look yellowish.  I suspect that all bronze- and gold-luster coatings are made with bronze, so I settled on "bronze-luster" to describe these beads.  Curiously, the supplier calls this color "topaz lumi".  That would imply that the inner bead is topaz, but I am sure it is clear.  Please note that in very bright light, the beads may appear much brighter than my picture shows.  I fixed up the picture at night, and under artificial light they looked pretty dark to me.
