Click to enlarge
Price Per Lot: $4.00
Lots Available: 25
Style No. (bin): G2076 (bpa~)

Style: G2076
Beads per lot: 25
Cost per bead: 16 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 8mm round with 3 facets or "cuts" around the middle.
Colors/description: Opaque light lavender with a mottled pink or lavender "picasso" coating on the round portions.  All the beads have a visible seam in the middle which is the same shade as the rest of the bead, but darker.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: Some slight imperfections can be seen in the facets (specifically, shallow ridges can be seen on some facets), but that is normal for Czech faceted beads. I also noticed an occasional nick or small pit.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: The supplier calls these beads "Persian Rose", but to me they look more lavender than pink.  In the past, however, I have used the word "mauve" to describe the coating.

I should point out that these 3-cut beads have deeper "cuts" than other beads that I have carried in the past, so they appear triangular when looked at from above.

These beads are from a new supplier that has higher prices than the suppliers I was using before, so my price is pretty high.  However, I feel that the quality is better.  Despite what I say under "Defects" above, I feel that these beads are a cut above the other 3-cut beads that I have carried before.
