Average size is under 2inches long, though some are larger. The dime in the image will give you a gauge in the size. These beads are from old vintage stock and came out of the famous A Grain of Sand bead hoard. They were originally from the Philippines and are all natural. You receive 50 grams of these beads that have been drilled at the top. That's approximately 60 per lot. They vary in shape and color. You may have seen these beads in ethnic jewelry designs. We noticed that they were used in the show Project Runway's first season. They do make very interesting finished pieces.
If u r looking to match 4 Earrings... And a bit "particular" about yur Pairs, buy more than 2 lots... I got @ 9 decent pairs from 100. That is expected.
For the amount I got, only 7 are drilled badly. Really amazing quality. Gem Quality.
