Size/shape: 3mm (thick) x 6mm (wide) faceted tire-shaped beads (rondelles) with facets around the outer edge.
Colors/description: Clear glass beads with various coatings on one side of the bead.  I see these coatings (among others):  bronze, blue iris, silver/aqua and luster.  See Comments below.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: I haven't noticed any significant defects.  However, fire-polished beads always have some imperfect facets.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: These beads look completely different when viewed from the "face" of the bead than when viewed from the edges (both the faces and edges could be called the "sides", so I'm using these terms).  From the faces, you can see much more color, including a lovely aqua which can be seen through the beads that have silver sprayed on them (I don't know if it's real silver).  From the sides, you just see slivers of neutral colors.
