Strand of Moroccan Zebra Shells; Mixed Colors
30" strand of mixed old and antique black and white and brown and white zebra shells from Morocco. These cute little shells are traditionally strung with coral and amazonite and are unique to Berber jewelry. The shells are old and there is some wear to some of the beads. They are not new beads. They were used by the Berber people in Morocco in traditional tribal jewelry and hair ornaments. These shell beads are about 100 years old, and very rare; 9-16mm long.
