Comments: One of my suppliers has had these beads for a long time, but I never had enough money to get them.  Now, unfortunately, the number of colors they have is shrinking.  In larger sizes, the beads look somewhat cheap, but they look good in the 4mm size.

I honestly don't know how they make these beads.  The aqua color appears to be applied to the surface of the clear beads, but the aqua portion looks like it's made of glass (i.e., it doesn't look synthetic).  Please note that the actual beads are a little darker than my picture indicates (i.e., the aqua portion is a darker aqua), but only slightly.
