Size/shape: 8mm round beads with rounded flutes (grooves); these are also called "melon" beads.
Colors/description: Reddish bronze with hints of purple here and there (the purple portion is the "iris" coating).
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.  In the case of melon beads, with their rounded fluted, you get more than just two reflections; I'm counting about five reflections on each bead.
Comments: I really like these rich-looking beads.  The reddish bronze color has evolved.  In the early days, it was somewhat dull-looking.  But now it is rich and shiny, and they throw in some purple to make it more interesting.
