The beads, like the ancient beads they imitate, are somewhat irregular in shape. 

Offered in Gray, Green, Teal, two shades of yellow, and dark blue, these strands are about 24" long,  with beads in the 6-9mm range.  They make excellent spacers.  The first photo shows the colors in the stated order from the inside out.

The white background photos are taken in daylight conditions. The black background photos are taken in the strong lab light and would be representative of what they would look like in the evening electric light. Some of the photos are backlit to emphasize their translucency. Note that monitor settings strongly affect the way the colors look. What you see on your monitor may differ from what you see with the naked eye depending on your monitor settings.
