Looking for juju and sparkle all in one? These crystals have some serious power. I wish I knew more about them than I do; I bought them from an African bead dealer years ago and have not seen anything like them since. They are obviously very old, as their surface shows beautiful wear and tear. They have beautiful sparkle and nice weight.
These beads are old. They do show some dirt and chips on some of the edges, and MOST of the points are slightly chipped or broken. If you click to enlarge the product photos, you will see this. This is part of their beauty, and attests to their age.
African beads have such mystery attached to them; they have been worn for decades, travelled continents, and will be around for hundreds of years into the future. Be a part of the mystery and let these beads grace you with their presence.
Knowing what I know about African beads, I am guessing these are Czech, and date back as far as late 1800's, early 1900's.
Crystals measure 35mm tall x 6mm at the top where they are drilled, and 13.5mm at their widest point.
This listing is for 4 beads.
