Price listed is for 1200 (1 mass) beads. These are approximately 6mm vintage Japanese baroque emerald glass beads. SOME OF THESE MAY SHIP LOOSE TO MAKE UP THE FULL MASS. The vintage Japanese beads are shipped with a powder coating to help prevent scratching. Most of these beads still have the powder coating (with some having more than others). These will just need to be rinsed off. The size and shape of these beads may vary slight.
