A Strand of Ancient Excavated and Antique Rare Stone Beads CRBM 10611
A Strand of Ancient Excavated and Antique Rare Stone Beads CRBM_10611. This 30 strand is composed of ancient excavated stone beads of cylindrical shape, intermixed with a few antique smaller disc-shaped carnelian beads. The ancient beads are likely from the Neolithic period, judging by the hourglass hand-drilled stringing holes. These are mostly carnelian beads, but also some rare jasper beads are on this strand, as well as a couple of quarts beads. The largest bead, which appears to be ancient red jasper, is quite rare to come by and is extremely beautiful.

Weights and sizes are approximate. In the world of beads, and especially ancient and antique beads, errors in identification are common. We do our best to research and classify our beads accurately, however, mistakes are certainly possible. We are always grateful for any new information.COLORS: Our photos are taken in different lighting in an attempt to show how beads look in different lighting conditions. We make every effort to show colors as accurately as possible. The white background photos are taken in daylight conditions. The black background photos are taken in the strong lab light and would be representative of what they would look like in the evening electric light. Some of the photos are backlit to emphasize their translucency. Note that monitor settings strongly affect the way the colors look. What you see on your monitor may differ from what you see with the naked eye depending on your monitor settings.
