Ancient Large Glass Roman Eye Bead

Availability: 1 in stock

Beautiful ancient, 2000+ years old Roman glass eye bead, excavated in Djenne, Mali, West Africa. This bead and others like it have long been traded along the Sahara trade route, The Silk Road. Condition is very good, but see photos for missing 2 eyes. Other than that, the bead is a beauty! Size is quite large, and there are13 "eyes". Nice two-tone blues with concentric circles around white eyes. Core is dark blue. Hole is about 3mm. 14mm diameter x 13mm tall. Unique and collectible with one flaw, minor wear. I love the flaw!
