These deep, richly colored cobalt blue round beads have been in our collection for well over 50 years. Just how old are they? We don't know, but at least 50 years. They have a nice, satiny matte finish that shows off their color just beautifully. They measure just a tiny bit more than 11mm, which is something of a rarity. Once they are gone, they are gone. We'll never see them again. The first photo is with a flash, so the color looks lighter than it does in person. They are $3.00 for 10 beads.
