Just check out your local bead stores or on-line bead stores.  If they are listing glass seed beads with a matte finish, then I bet you that is because they are etched/frosted.  I have some at home from my favourite bead store - basic Czech glass seed beads - just with a matte finish.

I've seen a good selection in the Fire Mountain catalog and website. They're labeled as translucent matte seed beads.

I have some on my site, see link below and what onyxnox says is good- try using the word matte or mat in your search. Good luck.
