Price Per Lot: $4.50
Lots Available: 4
Style No. (bin): C041 (eia~c)

Style: C041
Beads per lot: 50
Cost per bead: 9 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 3.5mm (long) x 4mm (wide) faceted bicones.  Bicones are like two pyramids joined at the base, with the hole running through the centers of the pyramids.  Unlike molded bicones, which have 4 sides, cut-crystal bicones have 7 sides.
Colors/description: Clear beads with a streak of ligh-olive-green metal on part of each bead.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: Defects on cut-crystal beads are generally so small and minor that it takes a magnifying glass to see them.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: These are Preciosa cut crystal beads, not fire-polished beads.  These beads are the Czech equivalent of Swarovski beads.  The facets of these beads are much more perfect than you will find on fire-polished beads.

The word "vitrail" means "stained-glass window" in French.  The Czech manufacturers use that word for clear faceted beads that have a streak of metal on part of each bead (the metal can come in different colors).  However, that word isn't used for AB beads.
