These rare white banded agate beads, come from a grave site in Balkh Afghanistan, that was excavated at the turn-of-the-century.
Most of the beads found were orange banded agate, These are the rarest of the handmade beads from this era, (200BC.-600AD).
I strung these on the finest quality Silk. Added a piece of red Mediterranean coral, and fabricated in 14 karat yellow gold. A true treasure of the world.
These beads do not exist anywhere else on earth except in museums.
