I formerly thought this glass was formed via the compositing of many fine thin hollow tubes. However, I now propose the gather may have been very bubbly glass—and these small bubbles, through elongation, have become micro-channels within the resulting cane—causing the chatoyant effect.
The perforations in the beads I have are so tiny, I made the assumption that the beads may have been drilled. I have an original necklace, perhaps from the '50s or earlier. I think mine are linked on wire—so an examination of the channel would not be easy.
Chris, please describe what you indicate by "red opal" (?). Are you referring to a slight dichroic/opalescent change in the tone of red, within the substance of the glass?
NICE BEADS by the way. Jamey
