These are a new type of Miyuki beads called Union beads (or sometimes Fusion beads).  Uniting Japanese quality and Czech beauty, these are Miuuki seed beads made in Japan that are then sent to the Czech Republic to be coated with beautiful Czech Glass finishes. 

Please note:  we asked about durability of these finishes. Here is what we were told: "All finishes “hold up” but are in no way permanent finishes but are very popular coatings that can withstand “normal” usage. Not exposed to extreme sun, sweat or perfume, they will do fine."

These are called Crystal Yellow Rainbow though I take exception to the "yellow" label.  Certainly in that general family, these are transparent beads with rainbow hightlight that overall look more apricot to my eye.  

Packaged in containers holding about 20g; figure roughly 40 beads per gram
