Price Per Lot: $2.70
Lots Available: 33
Style No. (bin): G2230 (cma~m)

Style: G2230
Beads per lot: 25
Cost per bead: 10.8 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 8mm round (spherical).
Colors/description: White beads with a mottled green "picasso" coating; the picasso coating has some blue in it.  The finish is lustrous, but not as luster as some beads I carry.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: The beads appear to be in good shape.
How photographed: Under two daylight-balanced lamps.  Note:  Using lamps leaves two bright spots on each bead -- especially on round beads -- but that can't be helped.  In the case of these beads, the lamps also left a ring of small reflections around each bead, like a halo.
Comments: I have carried this mottled green color in the 6mm size, and also in other shapes, but I only recently found a supplier that has them in 8mm.  The 8mm beads are very nice; the color is strong, and the mottled coating is very attractive (better than the 6mm beads).

On a personal note, photographing these beads was distressing because my old camera produced more accurate pictures of these beads than my new camera did.  My new camera made them look overly brown, and it didn't show the luster coating very well well.

Since buying these beads, I bought the G2344 beads, which are similar.
