4mm round, faceted (the facetting makes many of the beads look slender).
Translucent very-light green with a brownish-gold lustrous metallic coating.
Hole size:
1mm (estimated).
Defects: An occasional bead may be malformed, which is common with very small beads.  Also, fire-polished beads always have some imperfect facets.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: Chrysolite green is a very light green, but the green in these beads is so light that you can barely see it.  That may be because the beads are so small (in other words, what color there is in the glass is harder to see because the width of the glass is so small).  The overall effect is that the beads -- to me, at least -- look a little sickly.  I think they would be more attractive if the green color were stronger.  If there were no green at all, then the beads would simply look celsian (brownish-gold).  You should also know that the color of the actual beads is a bit lighter than the picture indicates.
