These incredible beads are true beauties, and with history too. Dating back as early as 1915, these beads were made in the Czech Republic. They are called Uranium Glass beads, as they were made with Uranium Salts.
This listing is for loose beads, in the most amazing, enchanting Uranium Green I have ever seen. The color in these is incredible- they will glow under a black light (see last picture). Generally, these beads were traded into and around the African continent, and have become highly collectible due to their intrinsic beauty and history.
This listing is for 5 loose beads.
The size varies slightly as they are handmade, but they are approximately 13x9mm.
The holes are approximately 2mm.
These beads are old. They do show some minor chips on some of the edges, but 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.
I am a bead dealer, and purchase all of my beads directly from reputable African bead dealers. These beads were imported directly into the US from Africa.
