Price listed is for 1200 (1 mass) beads. These are vintage Japanese cherry red baroque glass beads that measure approximately 6mm. SOME OF THESE MAY SHIP LOOSE TO MAKE UP THE ENTIRE 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.
