Price Per Lot: $4.00
Lots Available: 38
Style No. (bin): G2244 (dqa+m)

Style no.: G2244
Beads per lot: 85
Cost per bead: 4.7 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 11mm (long) x 3.5mm (wide) x 3.5mm (thick) dagger-shaped beads.
Colors/description: Glass beads with a synthetic gold matte coating; the beads have been tinted various colors:  violet, brown and a subtle green seem to be the main colors.  The coating is matte, but it does have some shine to it.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: The beads appear to be in good shape.
How photographed: Under two daylight-balanced lamps.  Note:  Using lamps leaves two bright spots on each bead -- especially on round beads -- but that can't be helped.  The close-up shot may show defects that the human eye can't discern.
Comments: Part of me likes these beads and part of me doesn't.  They are interesting, but they look synthetic.  The beads are sold in lots of 85 beads because they come strung that way.
