6mm beads with a spiral pattern similar to a snail shell.
The supplier calls this color "cinnamon", though actualy cinnamon is darker.  It is an orangey-gold (that's the best description that I can come up with).
Hole size:
1mm (estimated).
Defects: The coating on Czech pearls is fairly thin, and I don't know how durable it is.  Some of the coating may be missing from around the holes of a few pearls, or there may be some roughness in the coating around the holes.  Sometimes there are little sharp tags of coating sticking out from around the holes; the best way to remove them is with cuticle nippers. There may also be some anomalies in the coating, such as bumps, indentations or a bit of dirt.  Because pearls are lustrous, defects generally aren't visible to the naked eye, but may be seen under a magnifying glass.  IMPORTANT NOTE:  The color of these beads may have faded slightly since they were purchased, but only slightly.  Glass pearls do fade over time, but earthy colors like this never completely lose their color.  I stopped buying glass pearls when I discovered that they fade.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: These pearls are fairly pricey.  Supplier "C" charges more for glass pearls than any other supplier that I use, but that supplier also has more interesting colors than the other suppliers.  A year or two ago, this supplier raised the price on its pearls about 16%, and these pearls are now selling for a price that I refuse to pay.  However, I managed to get them on sale.  Even so, they were not cheap.
