Moghul agate bead from Pakistan A013
This beautiful agate bead is about 500 years old and was made during the Moghul empire. It has a deep purple and green color that changes depending on the lighting and angle with a lighter spot on one side. The most striking feature is the light blue mark inside the bead. The proof that this bead is very old is that the hole is not drilled straight through, but halfway from each side. This feature is specific to very old beads as the technology was still rather primitive. The feel of the bead is nice and very smooth and weighs approximately six grams. This bead will be great for a present for a loved one or a friend. Comes strung on an adjustable black nylon cord.
Size: 24 mm x 9 mm x 9 mm
