13 Antique Nephrite Beads
Classic Nephrite Jade beads hand cut in Idar-Oberstein, Germany and traded in China, early 1900's. These have a hard-to-describe color: they are a beige-greenish muted color, with some translucence. Really rare and beautiful! A collector item! Average size is 40mm long x 11mm diameter, six-sided faceting, 1mm hole. Price is for a strand of 13 beads!
