Country of origin:

6mm round (spherical).
Glass beads, probably milky white but possibly clear, with a lustrous dark plum purple synthetic coating.
Hole size:
1mm (estimated).
Defects: The coating on Czech pearls is fairly thin, and I don't know how durable it is.  Also, inevitably a few pearls will be missing some coating around one of the holes (a common defect with Czech coated beads).  A few pearls may also have some anomalies in the coating, such as bumps, indentations or a bit of dirt.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: To be honest, I'm not really happy with these beads.  The color is so dark that it is hard to see or appreciate the plum color.  My supplier is using a new supplier of glass pearls, and I don't know if these beads are from the old supplier or the new supplier.  If you like dark, subtle beads, you may like these.  Otherwise, you may find them too dark.  Indeed, I think the G505 beads are more interesting (see below).
