All beads are colorfast and consistent throughout the line. They were given their name because their glowing facets and brilliant metallic trim are reminiscent of the beautiful stained glass windows in old churches. are made with no lead content you’ll see the way the light shines through the bead like a stained glass window. Perhaps that another way they got the name “cathedral glass beads”!
