If you need a bright white beads, then these 10mm smooth round white jadeite beads are perfect. While they are marketed as "white jadeite," I believe these beads are polycrystalline quartz. (True jadeite is very expensive.)
As you can imagine, photographing white beads on a white background is problematic. Just know these are a nice solid, bright, opaque white. To attain this bright white opacity, these beads are heat-treated, which has the effect of altering the density inside the bead. When the bead is exposed to moisture (water, sweat, etc.), the bead may lose this opacity and become semi-translucent and a duller color. When the bead dries, it will regain some, but not all, of its opacity and color. So when possible, avoid exposure to moisture.
