Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 15.5mm (long) x 5mm (wide) x 3mm (thick) dagger-shaped beads with the hole running sideways through the narrow end.
Colors/description: Light violet with a bright gold-luster coating (see Comments below).
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: I haven't noticed any defects.
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.  Also, the close-up shots may show defects that the human eye can't discern.
Comments: The official name of this color is "smoky topaz/gold luster".  What that implies is that the glass is a light smoky topaz color (light brown or gold).  However, when you look at the beads in bright light, you can definitely see a violet color.  The violet color may be caused by light reflections within the bead.  Covering a bead with a gold coating will create pink or violet light reflections inside the beads.  Please note that these beads are more expensive than most dagger beads I have carried in the past, thus the high price.  Also, the supplier says they are 16mm, but they measure at 15.5mm.
