Size/shape: Unevenly shaped round beads (they could be called Baroque- or nugget-shaped) with facets around the outer edge.  They are 8mm from hole to hole and 7mm wide.
Colors/description: A mixture of translucent and opaque pinks with a brown picasso coating on the unfaceted portions of the beads.  Important:  Please note that some of the beads (perhaps 5%) seem to have some opaque light lavender in them.  Either that, or they mixed some of the purple/lavender F612 beads in with these beads.  I am not pulling out the purple beads because it would take too much time, but also because I'm not sure the inclusion of the lavender isn't intentional.  They mix well with the pink beads.
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: These beads are dark and moody.  My picture shows them the way they look in bright light.  In low light, they look quite dark and not at all colorful.  The pink is a coral pink that isn't very bright, and the dark topaz (brown) is very dark.  They are the same type of beads as the F525 beads, but unlike many of the other colors, these are not colorful.  Fortunately, however, I got them for a lower price, so their price is slightly lower (nonetheless, they are still expensive).  Please be sure to read about the purple beads in "Colors/description" above.
