A special color made for Tancredi who requested something to tie the greens together. Except this is green sometimes and purple other times, depending on how the light hits it. You can see the effect in the photo. These are from 1958, one of the "newer" ones. Measure 6mm, bicones. Maybe they exist in rounds or other shapes too but I have not come across that yet. Sold in lots of 12 for $21 ORDER # BDVN6640.
Scarabee ovals. We have these in two sizes, I will get to that later. If you have been reading this catalog then you will know my feelings about scarabee, indeed, were it not for this color I might very well have never entered the bead world. Then where would you be? Probably just trying to make do with modern things, none of which compare to the vintage! Every bead in this photo is identical, yet they look so different due to the way light reacts to the direction they face. Look closely at the photo, you will see what I mean. Depending on how they lie determines what colors of the spectrum they reflect. How many beads can do that? We have these in 6x4mm. They are sold in lots of 6 for $24. ORDER #BDVN6342.
