Price Per Lot: $3.00
Lots Available: 10
Style No. (bin): F593 (dva+b)

Style: F593
Beads per lot: 25
Cost per bead: 12 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 5mm (long) x 7mm to 7.5mm (wide) faceted rondelles (tire-shaped beads).
Colors/description: A mixture of translucent colors:  beige, blue, light green.  Each color is included in both a shiny and matte finish.  The matte beads don't have distinctive facets apparently because the acid they were washed in (which makes them matte) made the edges of the facets less distinct.
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: The 'Beach glass' color mix has been extremely popular.  Please note that the mixture of colors is often different from one batch of 'Beach glass' beads to the next.  For example, sometimes the beige beads are more golden (but in this case, they are just beige).

The supplier charges a lot for these beads, which is why my price is so high.
