Size/shape: 5mm round with flutes (i.e., accordion-like grooves).
Colors/description: Very dark beads, possibly black, with a luster coating that reflects various colors, specifically purple, olive green and brown (there may be other colors in there).  There's more purple than the other colors.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: The picture revealed a couple malformed beads.  Also, the picture revealed that the beads seem to vary slightly in size from one to the next.  However, when the actual beads are viewed, they appear fairly uniform.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: The dark "iris" colors that Czech beads come in are blue, purple and green.  I usually get only blue because it's the only color that looks really good to me.  I don't know why I got these.  They don't look bad, but to me they don't look great either.  The picture has too much light reflections in it.  The light reflections obscure some of the colors.
