    amazing old diorite beads. Had no idea until I saw this necklace that this kind of stone could be carved in such a delicate manner. How did they get the holes through such small hard beads? A fantastic find and have seen nothing like it anywhere else on the internet, books or collections, so far.

    Fantastic to own, and I keep on wondering who it was wore these beads originally and where they where from

    Very many thanks

    Truly a fantastic experience. Allan was more than willing to entertain my questions and provide guidance to a new private collector.

    I was confident the piece was an authentic, first century antiquity. It arrived quickly and very well packaged. A detailed, professional COA packet arrived thereafter. The stand was custom designed, proportional and fitting for an overall museum-quality presentation.

    I have already acquired several pieces since and am looking forward to a continued relationship with Medusa {ancient} Art.
