Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 12mm (wide) x 8mm (deep) flowers with three ridges sticking out which represent three petals.  The hole runs through the middle of the flower.
Colors/description: Opaque greenish turquoise with a mottle yellow-brown "picasso" coating (which gives the beads an overall green color).
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: There appears to be some roughness (in the form of straw lines or shallow fissures) in the middles of the flowers, but that is a common defect with deep flower-shaped beads.  It isn't very noticeable, and it won't be noticeable at all of you string a small bead in the middle of the flower.
How photographed: Under two daylight-balanced lamps.
Comments: These are premium beads from my supplier of premium beads, which is why they are so costly.  The 3-petal flowers from this supplier have a slightly different shape than the 3-petal flowers from the supplier that I identify as "E".  These flowers have more pronounced "petals" (protrusions), whereas the petals on the flowers from E are more subtle and gentle.  Both types are nice.

This color combination -- turquoise with yellow-brown picasso coating -- is very popular.
