I love the depth of color in this tiny bead. Amazing 2 line etched carnelian with signs of its antiquity and wear from every angle.
Antique dzi beads now start at $6000 per bead.... luckily etched carnelians are still affordable to the general public, this ancient etched carnelian is really beautiful and one of a kind.
8 by 4mm. 1mm holes. One of a kind sourced in Kathmandu Nepal Estimated at 600 to 1000 years old.
