Price Per Lot: $2.00
Lots Available: 18
Style No. (bin): G2238 (aob~m)

Style: G2238
Beads per lot: 50
Cost per bead: 4 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 4mm (thick) x 6mm (wide) "pony" beads, with a large hole through the center.  The term "pony", I believe, comes from the shape of the bead that is sometimes put over the top of a pony's tail.
Colors/description: Clear beads with rosy pink paint in the holes (see Comments below).  The pink is slightly violet in hue.
Hole size: 2mm to 2.5mm (estimated).
Defects: Many of the beads have paint on them where it doesn't belong, such as on the sides around the holes.  However, those defects are almost impossible to see with the eyes and certainly won't be noticeable when the beads are strung (since the sides won't be visible).  Please note that the paint in lined beads can eventually disintegrate and fall out of the holes, but that will take many years.  Also, I noticed that a few beads have dirt in the paint.
How photographed: Under daylight-balanced lamps.  (Using two lamps to photograph beads leaves two bright light reflections on each bead, but that can't be helped.)
Comments: The actual beads may be slightly lighter (or pastel) than the picture indicates.

When I am looking at lined beads with just my eyes, they always look great; but when the pictures come out of the camera, I am always surprised by the number of defects that are visible.  The main defect is that paint can get onto the sides around the holes.  But as I said above, once the beads are strung, any paint around the holes won't be visible.  The beads are already inexpensive, so I haven't reduced the price.
