Bead material:
Country of origin:
Approximately 18mm (long) x 19mm (wide) coin-shaped beads, about 9mm thick.  The size varies slightly from one bead to the next.
Ceramic or pottery beads with a mottled turquoise and brown glaze.
Hole size:
2mm (estimated).
Defects: The beads are not perfectly shaped because they are hand-made.  Specifically, on many beads the glaze is thicker on one side than the other.  (The beads were apparently strung horizontally and then painted with the glaze, and the glaze pooled a little on one side.)  That is the only significant defect.  However, if you like large, chunky beads, I still think you will like these.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: I recently purchased ceramic beads from China.  Most of them were over-sized, but these beads are a more typical size for making jewelry.  I really like them.  I love pottery beads in general (what most people call ceramic beads), and these are a very nice size, shape and color.
