Bead is not encased. I'd guess dichroic stringer just because that's the easiest way to get sparkle. You can buy them premade or pull it yourself.

What gets me is the money grab "odd lots".

They seriously need to stop dumping two random colors into the filligrana machine and slapping a massive price tag on the trash it spits out.

I quickly multiplied out the tubes and I'm at over 300 if you count the color bar.
I generally try to avoid odd lots since I find they just end up getting hoarded.

I'm pretty sure that regular effete clear turns silver foil gold. I remember having to use pale aqua instead of clear to encase beads with silver for that reason.
