20mm elongated flat ovals (eye-shaped); they are 8mm wide and 4mm thick.  The hole runs through the length.  (I measured two of the beads and they are actually 19.5 mm long.)

Subtle stripes of opaque pink satin glass; some beads have areas that are completely clear.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

Unlike the first lot of these beads, which I carried several years ago and which was amazingly perfect, these beads are 35% defective.  That won't concern you since I am inspecting them individually and eliminating the defective beads before shipping.  If you inadvertently get some defective beads (especially if they are cracked), please contact me for a partial refund.  Not all beads have perfect stripes.  (See comments below.)

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

The pink in these beads is combined with clear glass.  I believe, though I'm not certain, that the manufacturer used clear glass (in combination with the pink) because the clear glass is more viscous and goes into the mold easier.  Consequently, some beads have small areas that are clear.  I'm not eliminating those beads because they look acceptable to me, and they are perfectly usable.  About the picture:  The picture is old and too dark.  The actual beads are a little lighter and brighter.  The color is very nice.
