Click to enlarge
Price Per Lot: $4.60
Lots Available: 10
Style No. (bin): F510 (cfa+e)

Style:  F510
Cost per bead:  9.2 cents

Bead material:  Glass

Country of origin:  Czech Republic

Size/shape:  Round beads with 3 "cuts" or facets or "windows".  The cuts do not meet each other, meaning that they are separated by the round surface of the bead.

Colors/description:  Light aqua or teal with a pronounced bronze luster coating on the round parts of the beads.
Hole size:  1mm (estimated).

Defects:  These are fire-polished beads, which means that one or more of the facets or "cuts" may not be perfectly flat and smooth.  Fire-polished beads always have some imperfect facets.

How photographed:  At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:  There's a lot to say about these beads.  First, I bought them to replace the G743 beads.  However, the new beads are lighter than the G743 beads.  Not only that, but the supplier seems to have sent me two distinct but similar shades, a shade which is more aqua, and a shade which is more teal (meaning that I have three shades now, the G743 shade and two F510 shades).  In the larger picture, you can see the aqua beads on the top, and the teal beads on the bottom.  You might wonder why I'm mixing the two shades in one posting.  Although the two look very distinct in the picture, to my eyes they look almost identical, and I am having trouble telling them apart.  Consequently, I can't tell you which shade you'll get.  The only thing I can guarantee is that if you order one to three lots, you'll get all one shade.  But if you order a larger amount, you may get some beads of both shades.
