The Indonesians are making very attractive beads with aventurine decoration and with a entire layer of aventurine over a red core.

For this design, the only real contrast is that the red core on Venetian beads of this type is the characteristic brick red. The Indo beads have a much lighter red core. These beads are finished beautifully - no rough glass on the ends, and the holes are large & clean.
