At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

IMPORTANT:  The actual beads are much brighter (i.e., more coppery) than the picture indicates.  The picture was fixed up on a CRT monitor, and apparently that makes it look dark on LCD monitors, which is what most people now use (including me).

The beads probably have some metal in the coating, but I don't know if it is actual copper.  I don't know if the coating is fire-polished onto the beads, but I have never known this type of coating to come off.
