Size of Shadesmar Spheres

Question

Does anyone know how big the object soul-spheres on shadesmar actually are?  Does that size vary?  Ive been looking for references but I havent found anything great yet, and I plan to try making an Art (not something Im terribly good at most days).

The beads in Shadesmar are, well, bead sized. About the size of dried pinto beans.

How big are the beads from Shadesmar?

...Bean-size, not as big as spheres.

Spheres are the size of your thumbnail, right?

Brandon Sanderson [PENDING REVIEW]

Spheres are a little bigger than that. They're like a big marble. Not quite as big as a shooter.

The spheres used for currency are "a little larger than a person’s thumbnail."

The Shadesmar beads are supposed to be smaller. ("...like those that would hold Stormlight, but dark and small...") But apparently big enough to pick up an individual sphere comfortably.

So perhaps the size of a pinky nail?

Awesome, thanks!  I was definitely picturing them bigger than both of those, something more quarter-sized (~1" or 25mm).   Where is that quote from, for my own reference?

Off the top of my head, I think it comes either from Shallan in Words of Radiance accidentally partially transitioning into Shadesmar, or just after the Oathgate thing in Oathbringer.
