Bead material:
Country of origin:
31mm fluted ovals.  These ovals have the same kind of accordion-type flutes that some melons have.
Ceramic or pottery beads with a mottled dark-blue and white glaze that looks a little like denim.
Hole size:
2mm (estimated).
Defects: The beads are not perfectly shaped because they are hand-made.  Since these are premium beads, I am inspecting them individually.  However, being hand-made, there may be some small defects that I allow to pass through.  The beads have a rustic appearance, so minor defects should not be a problem.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: The size of the beads can vary somewhat.  These beads are enormous and heavy, heavy enough that they will distort the shape of a necklace if you combine them with significantly lighter beads.  Also, they may be too heavy to make into earrings.  They are very nice beads, but I wasn't thinking when I ordered them.
