Mixed Graduated Teal Blue Faded Excavated Ancient Glass Medium Sized Nila Beads, Mali.
This particular type of strand has been a customer favorite! Just located two more hidden in inventory.
Circa 1200-1600 A.D.
This group is a little more worn with age. Strands measure approximately 25" each. Bead sizes range from 4-11mm in diameter.
The colors of the beads in these strands come out when treated with a tiny bit of olive oil (rub a little on your hands and then handle the beads). It brings out all their blues and greens!
The strands in photos are representative of available strands. Available strands are graduated with smaller Nilas at ends.
