The picture shows a blue bead. They are NOT blue. They are lavender. I held up the package to the picture on the computer and they aren't the same. If you need a blue bead, don't buy these.
Artbeads Response: We completely understand how you could have been misled by this Alexandrite fire-polish bead with AB finish. It is a crazy bead color that can go from blue to lavender depending on the light, as shown in the alternate image for this item. It can make for a stunning effect in your jewelry! Of course, if it doesn't work with your jewelry design please feel free to return these beads for a full refund.

Love these little gems. Adds a beautiful sparkle to any project.
I ordered these thinking they were more blue but they seem a little more purplish. They are still beautiful and I used them to make some snowflakes using the 8pk snowflake frames.
These beads added a very nice contrast to my rainbow fluorite.
