They also have a painted or dyed center which is a different color than the exterior. These beads are Less durable than most finishes as they may fade if the paint is a bright color, or may rub off if thread is passed through the bead multiple times.

All of our transparent color lined beads will have “Tr” or “Transparent” and “CL” or “Color Lined” in the description for easy identification.
