These glass beads are a fresh, cooling medium pale aqua color which the eye just can't stop drinking in. The shape is a classic, sometimes refered to as a "skittle" shape. They are 10mm in length and are 8mm in diameter. There is a bit of variation as each is made by hand. They come from Firozibad India, famous for its glass industry. They are $1.50 for ten beads.
