This lovely black Islamic glass bead came from Rita's travels to the Middle East and was purchased in the 1980's or early 1990's.
Approx. 30mm end to end. It has a chip on it which is why it is priced a bit lower than others. Chip is at end and can be hidden with adjoining beads in a necklace design.
This bead is truly lovely.
