Steeped in a long tradition of carving both beads and artifacts from animal bone, Nigerians have been adorning themselves for centuries. These antique, natural bone beads are dated from early 1900 and have the rich color and glow that only old bone beads have. They look so much like amber, we almost mistook them for copal, the African equivalent to European Amber. Janice will not purchase ivory or bone beads made today, but because they are old, felt a natural pull towards the energy coming from these beads.
Sold in package of 5 beads. Each bead is unique. Expect variations.
