Comments:

I carried these beads once before and really liked them.  They are very smooth and feel solid in the hands.  When I was ready to re-order them, I discovered that the supplier had increased the price by 112% (meaning that they had more than doubled it).  I was very upset and sent them an angry note, and then I resolved not to buy the beads again.  However, the beads are very nice, and they are consistently perfect, so I relented.  Their new wholesale price was higher than I pay for the polished rectangles, which is why my price is so high.  However, they are the nicest amethyst luster beads I have ever carried.  This shape could also be called "snail shell".
