these all have some age to them, thousand or so years, depends on where they were kept during that time that would affect their surface or internal structure, some soils are acidic some more alkaline and some neutral, also the glass may have different chemistry which would be affected in different ways as well.......which says nothing of the use and wear the beads received during their use.....I would guesstimate the checker beads I show are all from the same time period or close, where they were found and who used them ages ago would be a mystery that could affect the surface.....I would never judge a bead by its surface solely, Thomas
