Size/shape: 6mm round with facets.
Colors/description: Opaque greenish aqua (turquoise) with a light gold coating which is not visible in the picture.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: The beads appear to be in good shape, but fire-polished faceted beads always have some imperfect facets.
How photographed: Under two daylight-balanced lamps.  Note:  The close-up shots may show defects that the human eye can't discern.  (See Comments.)
Comments: Unfortunately, the subtle gold coating on these beads can't be seen in the pictures.  The coating is not a gold luster coating, as many other of my beads have.  It is shiny but not lustrous.  It looks a little as if the beads were coated with gold-color powder.

The facets on these beads are very good -- almost perfect.  For many years, Czech fire-polished beads had defective facets, as if they had been cut with dull blades.  It appears that those days are over.  The quality is much better than it used to be.
