The one I received isn't as flawless as the image above nor the aventurine bead I also purchased. If inspected closely, its interior is striped from the many flawlines and stone lines that--I think--look healed.
This bead is actually prettier in actuality. It looks great on my bracelet. With this price, you can't go wrong!
I thought this was an excellent buy. love the look of it.
I use these glass bead as necklace charms, I change different color glass bead to match my clothing.
