Price Per Lot: $1.50
Lots Available: 25
Style No. (bin): G2148 (cea~m)

Style: G2148
Beads per lot: 75
Cost per bead: 2 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 6mm round (spherical).
Colors/description: Light teal (greenish aqua).
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: Defects that are common to pearls include slight anomalies in the surfaces, and tags around the holes that have to be clipped off with nippers (although I don't see any of those problems in these pearls, so far).  Pearls are synthetically coated, and I don't know how durable they are.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.  (The beads have lightened since the picture was taken.  Please see Comments below.)
Comments: IMPORTANT:  These beads have lightened while they sat on the shelf.  They are still teal, but a much lighter shade, and now they have a silvery look.  (The beads are now lighter than they appear in the picture.)  I didn't know when I started buying pearls in 2002 that their color fades with time, especially if there is blue pigment in the coating.  I have reduced the price to 1.50 per lot, which is about one-third of the original price.  The beads will never entirely lose their color, but they will become lighter with time.
