The rough stone for these beautiful antique agates was mined in Northern Africa and traded into India where they were cut into beads. Most were then traded back down into Africa. The newest beads were made during the 1500's, but many are much older.

Each stone is unique with different color patterns and striping that is common (and highly desired) of agate. Some even feature orbital designs known as "eyes". These designs were thought to protect the wearer from the evil eye.

The beads range from 19mm to 32mm in length. Total length of strand is approx 16 inches.

You will receive the exact beads you see pictured here. The beads are temporarily strung and meant to be used in your own jewelry creations.

This agate beads are indeed antique pieces and their condition reflects that. Worn edges and weathering are a product of time and use...not defects.
