Strand of Chartreuse Majapahit beads
20" strand of small, medium, and large size (11-21mm diameter) Chartreuse Majapahit beads These glass beads are somewhere between 500-700 years old. They are lovely things made in and around Java/Indonesia and traded by the Chinese all over South Asia. Nowadays they are often lumped in with other Tradewind beads.
