6mm beads with a spiral pattern similar to a snail shell.
The supplier calls this color "cinnamon", though actualy cinnamon is darker.  It is an orangey-gold (that's the best description that I can come up with).
Hole size:
1mm (estimated).
Defects: The coating on Czech pearls is fairly thin, and I don't know how durable it is.  Some of the coating may be missing from around the holes of a few pearls, or there may be some roughness in the coating around the holes.  Sometimes there are little sharp tags of coating sticking out from around the holes; the best way to remove them is with cuticle nippers. There may also be some anomalies in the coating, such as bumps, indentations or a bit of dirt.  Because pearls are lustrous, defects generally aren't visible to the naked eye, but may be seen under a magnifying glass.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: These pearls are fairly pricey.  Supplier "C" charges more for glass pearls than any other supplier that I use, but that supplier also has more interesting colors than the other suppliers.  A year or two ago, this supplier raised the price on its pearls about 16%, and these pearls are now selling for a price that I refuse to pay.  However, I managed to get them on sale.  Even so, they were not cheap.
