I use these in patterns of seed bead spacers for jewelry. Their matte dark color lets whatever is next to them move forward and stand out. I have already used more than I thought I would!
I did not find the color to be as in the photo. It's not a slate blue. It's more like a slate dark gray. I will still use it, though.

looks like picture. nice feel and quality.
This item is really excellent for bead weaving. I used it to create the base of the spiral. I added 4mm pearls and 4mm bicone beads. Picture attached.
