Defects: Important:  Most beads are cracked.  The cracks do not not seem to be making the beads come apart, however, as I have not found any broken beads in the package.  The cracks can be seen with the eyes, but they are not obvious.  Your customers might not notice anything wrong.  Since the beads will be usable for many of my customers, I reduced the price by just 33% (though the vast majority have cracks).  One-third off isn't a bad discount.  I got the beads from one of my most expensive suppliers, so they would be very expensive otherwise.  If not for the cracks, I'd be selling them in lots of 25 for over $3.00 per lot.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: I think that my comments under "Defects" say it all.  Cracks in mixed-color beads are not unusual.  Except for the cracks, the beads have a very pleasing, gentle, sophisticated appearance.
