The dark bead here has the thickest glazing effect of all these beads you can actually feel a raised surface along the decoration with your fingernail. I've seen many etched beads with the decoration slightly recessed, I think the etched part becomes slightly softer from the treatment & wears down over time more than the surrounding stone. Not so with this bead.
Another blacked line bead, overcooked.
