You are buying 8 large charms or pendants for total price of $6.00. These were purchased at a bead store in South Africa. They are very light weight. I do not know what material they are but a base metal of some sort. Six are shiny and 2 have a pattern. They are identical on both sides which is nice because you don't have to worry about them flipping around. Plain ones are slightly larger than patterned. Patterned is roughly the size of a US quarter coin. Patterned is about an inch across and plain about 1.25 inches across. Great for necklaces, key chains etc.
