Strand of Blessed Ceramic Buddhist Prayer Beads
30-32" strand of small ceramic Buddha beads from Thailand. Older stock from 1980s; each bead measures approximately 10mm long x 10mm in diameter with a very small 1mm (or smaller) hole. The image of the Buddha is on the bead seated in a yoga position. Dark reddish ceramic beads, some, but not all, have gold leaf applied to their surface (the gold leaf indicates they were blessed by a Buddhist monk). Very delicate (leaf tends to flake off if rubbed). NOTE: the gold leaf is randomly applied to each bead, it may or may not cover the buddha.
