Strand of Roman Glass Beads, Coins

Availability: 8 in stock

19" strand of ancient Roman period thick glass pieces cut and drilled as beads recently. Over 2000 years old from various excavations in and around Afghanistan. A variety of mostly round lentil-shape or coin-shape beads, graduated sizes and mostly sea-green. Wonderful as it is, but needs restringing. Sizes range from 10mm diameter to the large centerpiece 22mm and are mostly 3-4mm thick with small .5mm holes. This ancient glass has calcification and patina, and some small serpentine jade bicone spacer beads inbetween.
