Blue Islamic Ancient Glass Eye Beads, Mali and Mauritania.

Also available in Green with Yellow Eyes. See optional finishes. Prices vary by finish, wear, eyes, and color.

These very special ancient excavated eye beads are found in Mauritania and Mali, specifically in the caravan towns of Timbuktu, Mopti, Djenne and Gao. They vary in design and wear, and iridescence, and are thought to be somewhere in between 600-1000 years old, or more.

Traded and worn to keep away the "evil eye" in many cultures across the Mediterranean.

Sold individually.

 Sizes generally range from 7-14mm. Let us know your size requirements, and we will do our best to fulfill them, based on our inventory.

Stunning for use in designs in a super elegant necklace of smaller beads with this as a focal bead!

    Pictures were accurate and the beads were rapped in a perfect amount of rapping to make sure there was no breakage. Will purchase again. Great customer service and friendly!
