Czech Fire Polished Beads, Gray Metallic finish (the natural look of hematite) Measurements: 4x3.5mm Quantity: 50 beads
In Czech Fire Polished beads, the shape called Round is actually more of an oval. Fire Polished beads are glass beads that are faceted by machine. The edges and surface are then given a softer, polished look by placing the beads in hot ovens or over open flames. By virtue of this process, Fire Polished beads are all slightly different from each other; this adds to their charm. Unlike Austrian faceted crystals, Fire Polished beads contain no lead. It is the heat polishing process that gives them their soft glow and brilliance.
Additional info: Fire polished beads are considered by many to be one of the most essential components for jewelry making. The Czech bead makers are famous for their exquisitely crafted yet relatively inexpensive faceted beads.
