Mixed Glass Antique and Ancient Nila Beads, Dark Blue with Some Green, Mali.
Discovered in the sands of Mali on old trade routes. These beads are at least a hundred years old and are mixed with some much older beads from 1600 A.D. and before.
These beads are fabulous in deep blues with some greens mixed in.
NOTE: These strands came to us with an odor and a coating, which we have been unable to fully remove.
Approximate 28" of beads. Bead sizes range from 3-6mm.
