Price Per Lot: $2.00
Lots Available: 2
Style No. (bin): G2310 (cea+x)

Style no.: G2310
Beads per lot: 50
Cost per bead: 4 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: India
Size/shape: 4mm (thick) x 7mm (wide) saucer-shaped beads (rondelles) with the hole through the center.  These appear to be hand-made beads, and the size varies considerably from about 5.5mm wide to 8mm wide.  The thickness also varies.
Colors/description: Turquoise (opaque greenish aqua) mixed with medium and dark green.
Hole size: 1mm to 1.5mm (estimated).
Defects: As I stated above, the beads vary in size, although most of them are close to the dimensions given above.  In addition, the shape of the beads varies somewhat from one to the next (some of them are puffy).  Some beads have a swirl of dark green around the hole, and a few beads (not many) have other anomalies around the hole.  Also, a pit can be seen on a few beads, and a few beads are misshapen.  Because of the defects I have given the beads a low price.
How photographed: Under two daylight-balanced lamps.  The close-up shots may show defects that the human eye can't discern.
Comments: These beads are from my 1980's stash (when I was making jewelry myself).  They are rustic beads and will look best in informal jewelry.
