Czech Fire Polished Beads
8.5mm Rondelle Spacers (Donuts)
- Czech glass beads in a alexandrite color. Beautifully soft reflective quality.
- Fire polished glass beads are faceted by machine. The edges and surface are then given a softer, polished look by placing the beads in hot ovens or over open flames. By virtue of this process, fire polished beads are all slightly different from each other; this adds to their charm. Unlike Austrian faceted crystals, Fire Polished beads contain no lead. It is the heat polishing process that gives them their soft glow and brilliance.
- The "Alexandrite" color looks different depending on the light source. Under fluorescent light, they appear as pale blue. Under natural light, they are a beautiful lilac color.
- Measurements: 8.5 in diameter around the strand hole, 5.5mm thick along the strand. The strand holes are 1.3mm in diameter.
- Quantity: 12 beads
