They are not purple or turquoise. They are cloudy bronze. Sent them back.
There is nothing wrong with the bead's quality or value. The title of the bead, however, is "medium turquoise with purple matrix teardrop". Frankly, I can find no purple or turquoise anywhere on this bead. They are a muddled sort of copper/bronze color which is not at all what I was looking for. When you buy online, which I prefer to do, often you are taking a chance in terms of color. I think the name of this bead should be changed since for the life of me I can find no purple or turquoise anywhere on it.
