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: I got these beads at the request of a customer.  They are quite expensive given their small size.  If they sell well, I will get them in other colors; but I'm not usually willing to pay so much for beads of this size.

Celsian coatings are interesting.  They seem to be a mixture of topaz and bronze.  If you look at them from one dimension, it appears there is a layer of topaz on part of each bead; but when the light reflects off them, it looks like a bronze coating.
