What can I say, I'm in love with these green Charlottes. I don't know if it's the color or the oily finish of them, or a combination of both, but I can't get enough of them! They remind me of Jade. Not jade Aventurine, but the real stuff, the dark green Jade you find in Tibet. I've yet to find a true Jade bead I can afford, but I've found some reasonnably priced Brazilian Agathe stones that came really close.
