Style: G2026

4.4 cents

Glass
Country of origin:
India
Size/shape:
7mm round or spherical beads.  The size varies slightly from one bead to the next.  Also, the beads are a little squat, meaning that they are slightly shorter than they are wide.
Colors/description:
Bright opaque blue with swirls of darker blue in many beads.  The beads have a satiny sheen which is midway between shiny and matte.  I don't think they intended to make them that way; that's just the way they came out.
Hole size:
1mm (estimated).
Defects:

I estimate that about 8% of the beads have small pits.  In the picture, they look pretty large; but to the naked eye, they aren't very obvious.  Also, some beads have flat areas around the holes.  I have given these beads a fairly low price.

How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: There's a possibility that I made the picture a little too dark.  Also, the shade of this blue can change slightly depending on the light source.

These being Indian beads, they aren't perfect, but I like them.  Indian beads have very bold colors.  I got this color in three sizes.
