Worn strand of faded early Islamic era rare bicone shaped glass beads. Likely to have been manufactured in Egypt and traded in West Africa.
Circa est. 900-1400 A.D.
36 beads. Bead size ranges from 18-22mm hole to hole.
This strand was treated by something and the beads still have a noticeably different texture (soft vs cool and hard) and a bit of a smell. Worn and have color loss.
Will need some treatment to help lose the smell.
Sold as is. Price accommodates condition.
