Pair of Shiva Carnelian Beads, India
These double-sided carnelian coin-shape beads were made recently in India, and depict the deity Shiva. 22mm diameter x 12mm thick, these are an incredible focal bead, too heavy for earrings. Carnelian has a wonderful matte finish. These design well with Afghan semi-precious stone beads, with the similar smooth finish. Holes .5mm. Last photo shows some bracelets using a mix of Afghan stone and Thai silver beads. Sold by the pair.
