Jamey gave a presentation at the 2004 Bead Expo noting the unusual construction of the murrine in the old Boshan beads - as if a strip of glass was rolled up, causing the tiny stripes to spiral outward from the center.

The newest beads seem to be using the Venetian drawn cane method - no spiraling.
