Big heart that is about 3/4 in. thick and 1 1/4 in. high.
It is not blown, but full glass, so it is fairly heavy.
Very accurate description. You need to use a reamer to slightly smooth the holes.
On the picture it shows bright yellow, but it is more dark gold foil.
The light would not go through much as the foil covers most of the heart, not on the surface, but just below as the description mentions.
Mine is missing gold foil in a fairly large spot in the dip at the top but with the bail it won't show much.
There is also gold foil missing at the bottom, but just on one side of the heart, so if I put it at the back it does not show.
If you like the color gold and splashes of blue, green, white and orangy/red then this is for you.
this bead was no where near as brilliant as the picture. Even when I held it up to the light it didn't have the glow that you see here. It is heavy glass and well made, but it just didn't have the visual "umph" that I expected.
